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.

Our senses are the window into the world and they are vital to help us understand and make sense of what is happening in the world around us. For many autistic people the way this information is processed makes their experiences very different. Here we will explore some of those differences.
