More information about the Local Autism Directory (LAD)

The LAD is a direct response to people’s request for a one-stop-shop of information across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. It will help to connect the autism community, professionals, employers and service providers and help them access autism information all in one easy place. The LAD will provide information about many local issues including support groups, activities, schools, employment, housing, developments taking place across the county and neighbouring regions. It also has clear and simply written autism research articles to help people stay up to date with new approaches and helpful information.

The Local Autism Directory has been commissioned by SHIP Adult Services and Health and developed by Autism Hampshire. It is very much a combined approach to deliver information and support to people affected by autism.
