We appreciate not everybody is available around the typical working week, and unfortunately grant funding is not available to all areas in Kent.
As parents of children with additional needs ourselves, we understand and know all too well how demanding, frustrating, challenging, draining and yet rewarding home life can be when faced with some of the difficulties every day life throws at us. Progress can feel slow and some days we can feel like the only person going through the challenges we face and become isolated.
We offer a private consultancy service by telephone or via Zoom (video call) at a mutually convenient time. We can discuss any aspect of your child relating to autism (both pre and post diagnosis), talk over any concerns you may have and help you to identify a clear path moving forwards. We can assist with strategies, interventions and understanding by family support advisors who have lived experience of many conditions. You can be assured that you are working with other parents and are not being judged, as we can often feel.
We have vast experience in:
Many parent/carers suspect their child/young person may have autism long before they actually receive a diagnosis. The road to diagnosis is sadly often a long one and it can be a particularly isolating time for those trying to help and understand. This is a crucial time to start implementing strategies that can really help your family.
We can help to support you, listen to you, offer advice and work with the professionals involved, plus if you want to, we can put you in contact with other families who have been or who are going through the same difficulties.
Many parent/carers find the application process for an Education Health Care Plan (a legal document clearly explaining your child's needs and intervention required) complicated and overwhelming. Some require some extra support to navigate this system successfully and some families need someone else to help them through the entire process from application right through to the appeal system if required. As a team, we have successfully applied for, checked and settled not only our own but many young people into the correct provision, whether that be mainstream, a resource provision/unit or a specialist setting.
We charge an hourly fee at very reasonable rates for our consultancy service.
