signpost - empowering families, changing lives

Dads’ Page

Welcome to our dads’ page! Sometimes dads tell us that they feel left out, or can’t find information that suits them, so we hope the following information is interesting to you.

For dads of children with autism, we run occasional evening sessions to help you learn more about autism, and meet other dads in the same situation. Contact the office to find out when the next session is.

If you can’t find what you are looking for, please contact us for help.
