Like everyone else we are adjusting to changes in our working environment and practice as we navigate these challenging times. At the Network we want to offer support in any way that we can through this next period. Whether that be signposting to resources, educational tools, social stories, strategy planning or more bespoke tailored information relating to specific individual circumstances. We will be working remotely and only undertaking essential travel, however we are contactable by phone, email. We can also discuss the use of alternative communication methods such as Skype on an individual basis.
Please keep in touch with us and let us know how and when we can provide support. Equally, if you become aware of any resources, information or services that might be helpful during this time, please send them onto us so that we can share nationwide.
Stay safe and well,
From all of the Autism Network Scotland Team
