Support For Autism, Aspergers & Special Needs

drop-in support

Sensory deprivation can be caused by any number of different problems and is a struggle for any child to cope with. And no matter how much love is available it is often a struggle for parents and carers as well.

If you are struggling to cope and would like real, practical advice from someone who has experienced what you are going through, or maybe you just want someone to talk to - then give us a call and ask to speak to Linda. 

You can get practical advice and get connected to a range of support organisations that you might not be aware of. Or just talk with Linda and with other parents and carers who have experienced and coped with the same problems that you are facing.

Don't forget to check out our Facebook Group at #SensoryChat to chat to other parents and carers with experience.

You are not alone. There are others here who can help.
