Parent Support Network for Autism (P. S. N. A.) launched in 2011. The Birmingham based group was formed by Nicola, a parent of 2 autistic boys and Julie who has extensive knowledge about autism. The pair wanted to make a difference to lives of families with autistic children. The group has grown from strength to strength and every member of the group has contributed to that. Initially PSNA offered family support for parents, and carers of children awaiting diagnosis or with a diagnosis of autism or other related disorders. As the group has developed our support has been extended to incorporate outings and activities for families as whole. This has provided families the opportunities to network and form friendships outside of group meetings. The objective of Parent Support Network for Autism is to offer parents the opportunity to learn from one another, share their own personal experiences with one another and support one another.
