ADHD/ASD groups for Cambridgeshire Carers and Parents
Does your child have – or do you suspect they have – ADHD/ASD?
ADHD/ASD groups for parents run monthly for in Ely, Histon, Peterborough and Huntingdon. These are delivered by Pinpoint in conjunction with our counterparts Family Voice Peterborough and funded by the Clinical Commissioning Group. Parents and carers who have children with ADHD and Autism – with or without a diagnosis – are welcome to come along. The session are free.
So if your child is accessing services, are on the waiting list, or have had a referral turned down, come along for practical ideas on how to boost your resilience and work with your children at home and help manage their behaviour. The groups are co-ordinated by Pinpoint staff members Laura Potter and Linda Green.
Usually these are face-to-face groups but currently these are offered online.
