Other ways to get help


Support for children

For disabled children and young people (aged 0-25), the West Sussex Local Offer website provides information on how to find, and put you in touch with, support.


Assessment or diagnosis

Help from Adult social care

You will need to check that you are eligible for help from Adult social care. This would depend on an assessment of your needs and the outcomes you want to achieve that are affecting your ability to live well.

Need a diagnosis?

If you think you have autism/Asperger's, you can speak to your GP who can refer you for an autism assessment.
