From engaging in sports to going to museums, cinemas and theatres, you can find more information on leisure on their webpage. You can find out more and try some of those activities together, so that you can connect with your loved one.

The National Autistic Society also has useful guides for navigating family relationships, and advice for parents, siblings, and children on how to support their autistic family member.
