Family Development

Made possible from a wealth of experience gathered over four decades serving the North-east we’ve created a Family Resources website just for you.

Brought together by our Family Development team, members of our Neurodiversity think tank and from families sending us their tips and advice we’ve put together a bank of free resources to help you, as part of our valued community, to navigate the day-to-day challenges of life.

Autistic people often have co-occurring conditions such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Dyspraxia and Dyslexia. It is vital that we understand these conditions to be able to understand the unique profile of each person. Here you will find some key information on some of these co-occurring conditions, as well as real life personal accounts.
