Our support group is for parents and carers of children who display traits associated with or have a diagnosis of a neurodevelopmental condition including: autism spectrum disorder (ASD), sensory processing disorder (SPD), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). A diagnosis is not needed.

These sessions will provide a safe space for parents and carers to meet others in your situation and provide the opportunity for parents to support each other. The aim is to provide a supportive and empowering environment for our parents and carers.
