Learning Disabilities and Autism Support


If you have a learning disability and / or autism, you may be finding the COVID-19 outbreak stressful. You may be worried about changes that might happen because of it, including staying at home more. You may also be worried about your family or those close to you.

Below are some ways to look after your wellbeing. You can also visit the 5 ways to wellbeing page for further wellbeing tips.


Ways you can take care of yourself if you have a learning disability

  • Keep in touch with people that are close to you (like your friends, family and employer) by phone or internet.
  • There may be groups in your area that offer support to people with a learning disability. You can ask a family member or carer for help to search for these groups.
  • Keep any health appointments you have (unless you have been told otherwise) and tell people if you cannot attend appointments.
  • Make sure you take any medication you have been prescribed.
