YASS! is a self-help voluntary group run by parents to support each other and share information and experiences. It is aimed at children and young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder aged 0-25 years who have social, communication and imagination difficulties. The group arranges outings and events, usually in public places to combat and cope with these difficulties while also building confidence and self-esteem. Virtually all of its activities are family-based, so parents/carers and siblings are included and the feeling of isolation (and desperation) is relieved for all.YASS! does extensive family support work. YASS also sends out regular newsletters informing members of all news and local events concerning autism and others matters of interest.
