Other information

Meetings are 3rd Thursday of the month term-time, 9:30-11:30 at BeanBlock Community Cafe, ST Marks Place, Newark NG24 1XT. We are a group of parents with lived experience of ASD, ADHD, Sensory issues, demand avoidance and others diagnosed neurodiversity. We meet with families experiencing problems such as school, sleep, food and sensory along other agency participants. We can signpost as well as offering understanding and a listening ear. Lots of families gain valuable insight from other parents with lived experience. We hope to once again offer training for parents in the future.
