Social groups

As a parent/carer you may feel that more information, help, or advice is needed when supporting the needs of your child, who may have behavioural, sensory, social and/or communication challenges. We at GEMS recognise this and have provided a variety of courses that will help develop your knowledge of autism and/or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The courses offer support not just for those who are diagnosed, but for those who may have autism and/or ADHD and for the family.

The workshops vary in length. You will be listening to and speaking with trainers with extensive experience of delivering autism and/or ADHD courses and will have the opportunity to meet and share strategies with other parents/carers.

For more information, please scroll down to your chosen workshop and then contact the team by emailing: gems.4health@nhs.net or callng: 0800 999 1342 to book your place.
