ASD / SEND SUPPORT
We offer support for individuals and families of children & adults with SEND needs and/or neurodivergence as part of this service.
For family support, SEND is used as an umbrella term for children/young people with care needs above their peers. This could be a variety of things such as (but not limited to) neurodivergence, trauma, childhood mental health, physical difficulties and learning disabilities. Support available is for the whole family, including siblings.
Individual support is offered to adults with neurodivergence needs.
Neurodivergence is a term relating to Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia and Tourette's syndrome.
One-to-One Advice & Support
Support for any of the above is offered on a 1:1 basis-Hannah can be reached by email: email@example.com or on 07923 230579 (Weds&Thurs)- however drop-ins and peer group support(see below) are also available.
As part of the service, we are now running two different coffee mornings a month that aim to give attendees a chance to chat, share advice and resources and have a cuppa.
Families of those with additional needs - There is a coffee morning on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, 10.30-12.30 at the Charles Gardner Community hall.
Individuals 16+ with neurodivergence or mental health needs - There is a coffee morning on the last Wednesday of the month, 10.30-12.30 at the Charles Gardner Community hall.
If you would like to come to either coffee morning, register prior to attending by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have two private Facebook groups that share info & resources and provide a safe space to find peer-to-peer support.
If you would like to join the group for parents/carers of those with additional needs, or the new group for those 16+then please get in touch with Hannah.
