ASD Library

SIGNAL has an extensive library of autism-related books which members are able to borrow.

The library is kept at our base at the Hatcham Oak Children’s Centre and is available for browsing/borrowing by arrangement with our Administrator, Candida Miles.

In addition the library is available at those coffee mornings held at Hatcham Oak, and we also sometimes bring a selection of books to evening meetings.

Please contact our Administrator, Candida Miles, for more information.
