Neurodiversity Early Years Service

The Neurodiversity Early Years Service at the ADHD Foundation Neurodiversity Charity is dedicated to promoting early identification and intervention for young children presenting with emerging characteristics of neurodevelopmental conditions. Our expert team build knowledge and skills within the early years workforce through training, coaching and play based therapeutic intervention. Our relationship driven approach encourages mutual exploration of the child’s needs and support required.

Our aim is to ensure that neurodiversity is recognised, celebrated and supported taking a need led approach across the early years. 

Our team provide support to families of children attending private, voluntary and independant early years settings through our "Understanding your child's early development" parent / carer course. Course dates will be sent to Nursery settings, so please keep in contact with your child's SENCO for further information.
