Once ASD is diagnosed it can leave parents in an isolated predicament. Although we are not experts, WASSA members have amassed a great deal of knowledge and experience. As a result we can provide a source of solace and comfort for parents of children who have just been diagnosed.

Diagnosis can lead to stress and the decision making process that follows can have a detrimental effect on family relations. WASSA welcomes new members to the group where they will be provided with opportunities to share their concerns and worries with other parents, therefore helping to elevate some of this stress through communication and problem sharing.
