Talk about Autism is hosting a series of online Q & A sessions to support parents and carers of a child with autism on the issues they care the most about. Entitled the Family Support Season, the Q & As will launch on 16 January 2013 and run fortnightly until 30 February.

Each hour long online Q & A will cover a topic that families have identified as being an issue they would welcome support on. A survey ran on Talk about Autism and Facebook in November 2012 to identify these issues.

Each Q & A will be hosted by an expert in their field and will run from 8-9PM in order for them to be accessible for parents and carers.

The Family Support Season online Q & As are:

Mark Frodsham, Head of Communications for Ambitious about Autism, said: “The aim of the Family Support Season is to supports parents and carers on the issues that matter to them most. These issues were chosen by them as being important and by providing expert advice and support, at time and in a way that is really accessible, we hope that we can help.”

Mike Stuart, Community Manager for Talk about Autism, added: “It’s very exciting to bring experts from across the sector together and enable parents and carers to tap into their knowledge and experience. The Internet is a great way for people to access high quality support and advice easily and safely.”
