Welcome Aim What is ASD Inspiration & Stories Chat Laughs FAQ's & Info Contact

If you've met a child with autism  -  you've met ONE child with autism.

Each and every one of them is so wonderfully different!

This web-site started out as a forum on Facebook called Autism Parents Chat! PLEASE join us!!! Click the relevant link(s) on this page and ask to join any or ALL of the four groups - you WILL be made very welcome!

Chatting with people who understand most (if not all !) of your issues can be a great help!

Here are just a few of the comments members are making about our groups on Facebook!!….

I absolutely love this page and honestly can say I've learned more here than from any pro I've seen . Can't thank you enough x        God, I love this page - just sayin!!


This place has been more help to me than any professional I've seen .       Thank you all for your info its nice to hear I’m not on my own .         U all make me chuckle!


Thank you all again for reading, it means a lot.             I thought I was gonna die reading some of these.  You know when you laugh so much you can't breathe?  Lol x


You guys make me laugh so hard, the tears run down my leg.         I must say I’ve met some lovely, amazing people on this page.         Thank you - every one of you!


I only joined the other night, but straight away I felt comfortable posting about my experiences!!           Can I trade in some of my family & friends for you guys ?!



To say I love this page would be an understatement, you guys honestly ROCK, you've all made me feel right at home lol. THANK YOU!           

We also have a group dedicated to the Dads/Male carers of children and young people with Autism!
Some men struggle with expressing themselves, especially in a group with women - so this group is a place you can ask anything you want and have a good laugh -
ALL from a male perspective!

We cover anything and everything!  We have become very adept with the ‘serious’  questions  with  plenty of  advice  and  sympathy  as  required!
But beware, we
DO like to have a laugh! Some of it can be quite unconventional(!),  but then that often  helps many to lighten their day!

Some just pop in and have a read, others actively join in - you do whatever suits you  -  that’s just fine by us!   Whatever  works for  YOU!
Ask a question  -  you’ll be surprised at the high quality of the answers you will receive - all from people who have the RIGHT experience - life with an  autistic child or  young adult!   And  never a dull  moment!

No matter how odd you think your question is and that you are the only one on the planet to have faced it - you are NOT alone - there are plenty of others with  great  advice who have already been  ‘there’  -  honest!!!!

Many of us have Special Needs items lying around the house, unused anymore and unwanted!
This group is available to ALL people involved in special needs (NOT just Autism!) and is a safe and proven way to sell, swap, buy or even give away these items! There is NO item that isn’t Special Needs and
NO traders or businesses!

Autism Parents Community is a Facebook Page (as opposed to a Group!) and is open for ALL to see!  We include many inspirational posters to spread the ‘message’!
This is a general information page, where we share inspiring stories and useful information - all in a bid to give a better understanding of Autism for everyone!
Please tell as many people as you can about this page - the more the merrier!

In addition to our Facebook groups and page we also have a Pinterest page dedicated to all the awareness posters we have created and published on the Community Page mentioned above! Like the page, it is open for all to see.
Please feel free to copy and share any of our posters! Many have a humourous side, but all promote Autism awareness!

Autism Parents Chat is a truly global group of people! But we know that folks also like to get together face to face and meet with like minded people etc!
With this in mind, we formed this ‘off shoot’ group to bring our global community together - LOCALLY!
