The following quick guides are created for families who feel their child may be showing signs of neurodevelopmental differences. They can signpost you to resources and services to support you on your journey.
Although a clinical assessment for neurodevelopmental differences such as autism or ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) is helpful for some families, a diagnosis is not required to access additional support.
