Post-diagnostic support sessions

We are running a project to provide fortnightly post-diagnostic support sessions to autistic adults in Leeds.

The sessions will be funded by the NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group and will be for people who have received a diagnosis within 12 months of your initial appointment.

Starting in June 2019, we will be offering additional support for newly-diagnosed adults. We can offer you up to four appointments, including:

  • An initial appointment to find out what you need and go through relevant information
  • Up to two one-to-one appointments with a member of of our autistic staff team to explore your autism and strategies that may be helpful
  • A final appointment signposting to helpful support and helping you to put forward any needs
  • An option to attend our six-week support group, looking at autism in more detail

At the moment, we are offering post-diagnostic appointments remotely. These can be by phone, email, video call or text chat.
