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.

We can offer help and support with a variety of things including:

• Disability and carer benefits

• Grants and funding

• School and education

• Knowledge and advice around additional needs and strategies to help

• Support with understanding processes and procedures

• Isolation and loneliness

• Parent and carer wellbeing

• Group support (in person and facebook)

Neurodivergence is a term relating to Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia and Tourette's syndrome.
