Below are some resources and organisations that we sometimes use ourselves and are happy to pass on as recommendations. Dimensions is a site set up by the Coventry & Warwickshire CAMHS team and is a tool used for assessment, support and signposting for children and young people with autism.

The database includes interventions across the services for young people, inside and outside the NHS, including those available through charities, support groups and the local authority.
