Parents who maintain paid work in the home, whether it is running a business, freelancing or working for a company from home, will tell you that organisation and flexibility are the keys to success.

The new app, ASDetect, which is being made available for free download, aims to shorten the delay to diagnosis to ensure children receive interventions as early as possible.
