        "Making the complex easy to understand"

Hi!

It's lovely to have you connect with us and as someone who is living with challenges in my own family, I know only too well that it’s not easy when you want to help your child, but you're feeling overwhelmed, confused and with no idea where to turn...

Any mum or dad or individual who feels they need someone to help them gain an understanding of what is going on, is searching for that website that can give them a way that they can  easily access straightforward solutions they can implement immediately. Well, Autism & ADHD is that place! We can really make everything feel just a bit more supportive and easy, all you have to do is get in touch.

 

I have a great team of individuals that really get it, as whilst being highly trained professionals they all also have a personal connection to Autism and ADHD, bringing common sense, a real approach to help you to move forward, with straightforward explanations and easy things to try straight away. After all, none of us have the time or energy to have a load of useless stuff coming at us full of big long words and complicated management systems. None of it is helpful when you are dealing with a meltdown in the middle of the street!

You may feel that having a browse of the website and signing up for the newsletter is all you need at this moment in time, and we are very  pleased to have you with us. Just to explain, all our newsletters, phone calls and emails are free. We never ‘close a file’, so you can continue to access the team for as long as you need and we can give you some great support in that way.

If you feel you need more than that, then you also have the option to book a session with me, via  telephone, FaceTime or Skype. This 1 hour session gives you bespoke support and costs £40. These appointments get booked up quickly, so please contact us as soon  as you can. Finding the right support for a child diagnosed with Autism or ADHD (or both), can be quite the challenge. Finding support for the whole family can be even harder.

We offer support not just for those who are diagnosed, or have a suspected diagnosis, but for the family as a whole. We also support couples, adults, education, social care, health, business and the wider community overcome the obstacles that the diagnosis can throw their way.

So scroll down the page and see all the different ways we can support you, your family, your school workplace or community by making "The Complex Easy to Understand"

All the best,

So whether you are Mum, Dad, Grandma, Granddad, Aunt, Uncle or Next Door Neighbour, we are here to help. 

Siblings Support

We know that sometimes there can be a great impact on brothers or sisters of a child diagnosed with Autism or ADHD. They may feel as though they’re missing out, or they are being picked on by their sibling through aggression or anger. This can lead to great concern, both as a parent, and as individual.

If there are days when you feel everything just keeps going wrong and you haven't got a clue where to start to put ti right. let me reassure you, you just need some one to explain in simple terms what is going on and what you can do about it, and that is what we are all about. 

We can talk directly with you, your wider family and your children to help everyone understand and move forward, you just need to get in touch. 

 

Are you an Adult with a Diagnosis or Someone who thinks they may have a  Diagnosis? 

Maybe you were diagnosed as a child or only recently diagnosed, or maybe you have only just realised that this may be part of your identity and would explain a huge amount about who you are. Wherever you are on your journey we are here to help and support you. At times like these you can feel scared or isolated, or you may be feeling really excited to think that finally you have some answers to things you have always really struggled to understand. Please just get in touch either by email at info@autismandadhd.org or through the contact page on the website, and we will do our best to answer any questions you may have. 

 

 

Are You A Parent of an Adult with ASD or ADHD?

  Sometimes people aren’t diagnosed with Autism or ADHD until they’re an adult.

Families need training and information in this situation,  just importantly as those who face a childhood diagnosis. On the other hand, you may feel as if you need a refill of information as your child ages, so get in touch by emailing us on info@autismandahd.org and a member of the team will get in touch to go through exactly  what you need and if appropriate then book a 1:1 support session with Annie, or direct you to our free information and support.  

 

Parenting with an ASD or ADHD Diagnosis

We know only too well  that parenting can be hard work! If you’re a parent with a diagnosis, parenting can often be all the more confusing & challenging!

Building a strong relationship between you and your child whilst keeping yourself well, can sometimes be difficult to work through and balance.. Being able to understand how to do this  by developing easy and straight forward strategies  can really help with building that relationship, so get in touch to find our more by emailing info@autismandadhd.org or though the contact page on the website. 

Relationship Support

If your partner or yourself  has an Autistic Spectrum Disorder or ADHD, sometimes life can be a little overwhelming. We’re here so that we can work with you together, and you are able to gain an understanding on how to work as a team, learn about each other’s needs and how to go about building a life as a partnership, rather than constantly trying to find some balance and understanding.

Again email info@autismandadhd.org or go through the contact page on the website. .

Access To Work

 

If you feel as if you could benefit from someone coming into your place of work to help create systems & strategies that enable you to do your job more effectively, or to help your employer understand your needs, then please get in touch so we can discuss the best option to support you.

Anyone can book for support, whether that’s self-referral, or a Business commissioning in support for their employee. 

 

Email info@autismandadhd.org for more information or go through the contact page on the website.

 

Schools

 

We offer a bespoke service for schools which includes CPD for staff, working with children and families, as well as assessing  your environment, sport, young carers and developing provision such as lunch clubs and parent groups. 

Providing the right support for school children is about understanding their behaviour and their feelings and how the two work together. Inclusiveness should be something that is embedded into every classroom, every policy and communication strategy and across your whole team and community. 

If you would like to find out more about how we can help and work with you please just email us on info@autismandadhd.org.
