If you need any other info re holidays, general day to day support etc please get in touch, as my son is now 21 so I have a lot of advice to offer and know how hard it can be for parents.

So kind of u to share. It's a real struggle especially in holiday times to find places where people won't stare.

Not had a chance to properly read, but heat added purely for the thoughtful heads up.

Like a bunch of other people here, I have an autistic child and totally understand the difficulties that can arise, however "high functioning" they may be. He's still very young, and also has a younger *twin* brother and sister and to be honest we'd pretty much given up hope on the idea if having a holiday anytime in the next 10 years, certainly not as a whole family.
So it's nice to know there's options out there, and it's nice to know there are people like Meditrina (and the other members who've posted links) who are caring enough to share this information.

Thank you :-)

Great post and heat added

Great post, heat

Is this a deal or rather a guide? I don't have anything against autism, but I think it is not in the right section...

I agree great post might not be helpful to some but could be EXTREMLEY helpful to others -heat added

What a fab post.To late for my family as son is now 28 and wouldn't go on hols with us unless we paid him. Lol.Remember how his Aspergers and holidays usually meant doing at least 2 dry runs before booking a week.Will post on MSE if it hasn't already been done .If op doesn't mind.

Excellent post. My son has autism, great find thanks.

Knocik you clearly don't have a child/children with autism, because if you did you would be very greatfull that somebody has gone out of this way to share this very useful information on here, regardless if it is * in the right section or not* !!!

Heat added x

Fantastic....was interesting to see these things are out there and I hope it really helps someone!

What a brilliant idea. Thanks OP.

Speak to your local support groups or ask the NAS. I've bagged 5 days in a caravan during school holidays for 120 quid.

That makes me sad that people would stare. Maybe I'm not a narrow minded A hole. Bless all of you and Merry Christmas to you all

Heated too of course

Do one eh!!

This is a great thread, I have an 11 year old with ts, epilepsy, autism and had a stroke when he was 1 and a 9 year old with aspergers, this could be a godsend for parents like me

I have autism myself but I am shocked with the prices especially when the article says stuff like as LITTLE as £160 for 4 nights! thats a weeks wages after tax or there about for a single person on minimum wage!

I have heard bad things about the NAS not being quite so caring as they claim and they themselves are at least in part in it to make money but thats not really sort of thing to be discussed here.

The next thing I write no one should take as an attack but for as little as autistic children and teenagers get, nothing is really there for autistic adults, I was meant to do a training course through NAS a few years ago until the conservative government decided it wasnt worth funding, which was stupid as it gave me a permanent guaranteed job at the end well above minimum wage so by cutting funding me and others who were meant to be on the course all ended up still claiming benefits!

I came to this thread for the jokes and was sadly disappointed :(.

It kills me to read stuff like this. Not just since I've had a kid with autism, but always has. Cutting funding, because why help people improve their skill sets? Stick em on benefits, then paint them as scroungers. Makes my blood boil.
