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.

The diagnostic process can be complex and parents are often left with many questions prior to, during and after diagnosis. This will provide family members with key information to navigate the diagnostic processes as smoothly as possible.
