We are delighted to announce we will providing 4 new services for families of young people with neuro developmental difficulties.There is NO requirement that a young person has to have an AS diagnosis to access services, as we fully understand the current situation regarding waiting lists for diagnosis.
Firstly, we are now in the final stages of becoming a "not for profit" Community Interest Company.
Secondly, we are delighted to announce we have become part of Exeter Child Therapy Centre. (http://www.exeterchildtherapy.com/
). We aim to provide services to individuals on a 1-1 basis and to parents either on 1-1, or small group sessions in Exeter and work alongside a wide range of children's therapists and specialists.Thirdly, we have just secured funding to assist us to set up a group provision, for young people on the autistic spectrum and their parent/carers in mid Devon. We will be running the group in Crediton (The Black and White club - a very apt name!!) on a Thursday evening starting in January. Groups for secondary aged and primary aged children will run separately, in order to address and meet the different needs and issues. This service is not limited to families in mid Devon it is for any families willing to travel to Crediton. However,we will not be offering a drop in service due the need to ensure correct staffing levels, planning activities etc. Therefore families will be offered a place for 12 weeks at a time.
Please contact us for further information or to register interest.
Newsflash!!! Crediton and Totnes groups open this month (Jan 2014)
Saturday sessions now available for parents/young people with Lisa @ Exeter Child Therapy Centre.
