Other notes

We usually have a speaker at each group.  Some are geared more towards ASD some ADHD or both.  The meetings can sometimes be informal with a short talk from the speaker, then time for a chat with other parents over coffee or a more structured information session with a longer presentation from the speaker.  Speakers/Themes at the Peterborough have included:

  • SCOPE - Independent support – EHCP’s
  • Contact (National SEND Charity)– Services and support in local area
  • Marlene Hall Family worker (Wisbech ADHD group)
  • Think Autism – Core Features of Autism
  • Claudia Dias -  Lego Therapy
  • YMCA Trinity - Anxiety and depression
  • NHS Occupational Therapist – Sensory Information Session

The groups are designed for parents/carers and other family members whose children or young people are on the waiting list, have had a referral turned down or are accessing services for ADHD/ASD – either with or without a diagnosis.  Parents/ carers/ and relatives are all welcome to attend who have children or young people of any age.  Family Workers/SENCO’s/Teaching Assistants also occasionally attend to support anxious parent/carers.  We don’t have childcare facilities at our groups, but we can pay for any childcare expenses, plus any travel expenses.

Parent/carers feedback that they feel more relaxed, supported and empowered after attending our groups because they feel they have gained valuable information, know what they need to do for their child plus have met others in a similar situation.
