Parents and carers invited to free webinar to learn about support available for neurodivergent children and young people
Parents and carers in Warwickshire are invited to join a free webinar on Wednesday 21 June 2023, 12-1pm, to learn about the support available for neurodivergent children and young people and to hear the latest developments around the local all-age autism strategy.
Focusing on autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the webinar will cover the pre-assessment and post-diagnosis support available through the clinical neurodevelopmental pathway and how this can be accessed.
There will also be an opportunity to learn more about the enhanced offer from the All-Age Community Autism Support Service (CASS). Introduced in April 2023, the service aims to respond to local need and provide better targeted support, focusing on self-esteem, confidence, relationships as well as improving emotional wellbeing and mental health.
The webinar will end with a Q&A session, when parents and carers will be able to either ask their questions in person to the professionals or post them in the chat. All questions will be collated after the webinar and emailed to registered attendees, as well as being published online on the SEND Local Offer.
The webinar will take place on Wednesday 21 June 2023, from 12pm to 1pm. You can book your free place here
Everyone who registers will receive an automated email with a link and instructions on how to join the webinar. After the webinar, they will receive an email with follow up information including presentation slides and a link to the Q&As.
The event is the latest in a series of webinars hosted by Warwickshire County Council in partnership with Warwickshire Parent Carer Voice. They aim to offer informative sessions for families on a range of topics focusing on support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
