ARK is an organisation designed to support parents of children with autistic spectrum disorder or a social communication difficulty. ARK is run by parents for parents. They meet every 6-8 weeks and provide support, advice, friendship and a cup of tea!
The groups are great, and each session has a different focus;
some have guest speakers, some have specialists and others are for an exchange
ARK is well worth a visit if you have a child with ASD or
social communication needs. I have included a link to their webpage below:
