About the co-produced Neurodiversity Support Pack

Our Neurodiversity Support Pack (NSP) has been coproduced by families for families following a diagnosis of a neurodiversity.

Some families have described the experience of their child receiving a neurodiversity diagnosis (e.g. Autism or ADHD) with mixed emotions, and following the lengthy diagnosis process are left with little information, or understanding of ‘what next?’  Many families have told us that a 'one-stop shop' for information, resources and signposting following a diagnosis would be really useful, and they would like this information to be accessible and from a trusted source. 

Led by our Coproduction team, we joined together with parents, young people, local Parent Carer Forums, CAMHS, Education Psychology, and other key partners.  As well as making the pack informative and useful, it was really important to us that the pack uplifts people and celebrates neurodiversity. We know many families find receiving a diagnosis a challenging time, but empowering messages and having positive role models are so important to help parents/carers and young people on their journey.
