Getting a diagnosis

If you, or an adult you know has signs of autism you can talk to:

After a diagnosis

Our Adult Autism Team supports adults diagnosed with autism. If you're finding it difficult to look after yourself or manage particular tasks, you can contact us to discuss your care and support needs. We'll find out what care and support you feel you may need through a care needs assessment. During the assessment, we'll ask you about the things you're struggling with, and how we can support you with them.

You can have someone with you during the assessment if you wish. For example; your carer, a family member or friend.

We can also signpost you to other services and support that may be available in Stockport. This could include housing, getting into employment, the benefits you may be entitled to.
