We are aware that children with Autism (particularly those who also have the PDA profile or ADHD) can present particular challenges to both schools and within the family home.
We are happy to work with families, in a practical and sympathetic way, to provide support for children and adolescents.
As well as having extensive experience of working with children with developmental difficulties, we can help you unpick what is ‘typical’ childhood or adolescent behaviour, and what may be indicative of more significant underlying difficulties.
Our Speech Therapists can help children to overcome communication difficulties. Many of the adolescents we have worked with have found themselves in trouble with the police. We appreciate how distressing this is for both the young people and their families and can offer support and advice to solicitors, youth offending teams and probation officers where required.
We can also act as an Expert Witness service should a young person’s case go to court.
