Newly diagnosed autism child under 11? Your New Beginning.

Getting an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), diagnosis can be a relief. It can also be the beginning of an endless stream of decisions and questions – many dependent on the age of your child age, whether their autism presents as mild or severe, and if they have another diagnosis in addition to autism, such as dyslexia or ADHD.

In this session we will divide your needs into four key areas:

1. Family
2. Education
3. Health & Well-being
4. Social life and friendships

Then we will build a checklist and start to look forward. A diagnosis is just a word. Your child is still the same lovely, individual human being. By taking small steps, with your child, their school, professionals and your family and friends network, you will start to build your understanding of this condition and create your own suite of tools to support your child as they grow and develop.

Get a ticket for a family member, they’re very welcome!

Tea & Coffee served.

Autism & ADHD Therapies – What works & how?

There is no cure for autism. There is no cure for ADHD, but medication can and does help people with ADHD manage their symptoms. We’re not focusing on cures; we’re looking at supporting children and young people with these conditions to enable them access *all* areas of life, in spite of their difference. In the session we will look at some of the most common therapeutic approaches including:
-ERT (emotional regulation)
-Play Therapy-Lego Therapy
-Speech & language
-Social stories
There’s a lot to cover, so please bring a notebook!

Deep Dive in Autism & ADHD Behaviours

Autism is a spectrum condition which looks different from child to child, as well as presenting differently in boys and girls. ADHD isn’t just about being ‘hyper’ there are other ways it can affect behaviour in children and young people. Not all children with ADHD are hyperactive.

This session is a great opportunity to explore more about autistic spectrum condition and ADHD in their various forms, and continue your journey into deeper a understanding of your unique child.

Get a ticket for your partner or your mum or dad, they’re welcome! Tea & Coffee served.
