A range of leaflets and booklets are available from the Child Accident Protection Trust (CAPT).

These colourful safety guides are suitable for all parents, including those with low literacy, plus professionals working with them, ranging from baby booklets to leaflets for young people. For example, 'Keep your baby safe' (£30 per 50 booklets) answers many of the questions asked by expectant and new parents about choosing and using baby equipment and setting up their baby's room. Advice on sleeping, changing nappies, bathing, feeding, playing and clothing their baby safely is also provided. Sample copies of each booklet are also available.

A new online resource has been launched by the National Autistic Society, to help those with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) find out more about the services available to them. The Public Autism Resource and Information Service lists UK-wide information about diagnostic services, training courses, schools, support groups and other local and national services.

It includes details of social activities and fundraising opportunities.

There is a database with contact details of the English primary care trusts, and their equivalent bodies in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

There is a link for a list of government social services in all regions.

There is up-to-date news, reports and case studies to keep up with the latest developments in autism research and policy.
