Our service is specifically aimed at supporting children with brothers and sisters with ASD and related conditions. Although it would be great to siblings whose brothers and sisters have different needs our children have specific circumstances that are generally different than other disabilities/conditions.
Our therapeutic program is planned around providing information and answering questions about ASD and coping strategies to support the specific behaviours …. (eg many of our children are regularly hurt by their brothers and sisters).
Children need to be around the age of 7 before they are able to share experiences and take on board coping strategies.
Our staff have training and experience regarding ASD and mental health difficulties but not of other conditions. I hope you understand…
Our enthusiastic highly trained team have a breath of experience and knowledge working with siblings and Children with ASD and associated dificulties.
