The National Autistic Society explains that there is limited research, information or guidance about what bereavement and grief is like for autistic people or about the effects it might have on them. However, they do say that when going through bereavement there may be some significant changes in behaviour and people may behave differently to how you would expect them to.
This week marks World Autism Awareness Week and we would like to take this opportunity to raise awareness of peoples understanding of Autism, and also highlight that we as an organisation provide end of life care and bereavement support to people with Autism and their families.
