Neurodiversity leaflet

We recently sent our Neurodiversity and Autism Leaflet to all the diagnostic services in the UK, it is aimed at parents of newly diagnosed children and adults who are newly diagnosed. We have also worked on an ‘Easy-Read’ Version to increase accessibility to our resource. Both versions have been uploaded to the Times Educational Supplement and the NASEN SEND gateway as permanently available online resources.

We welcome feedback, please follow the link to do so: https://exeter.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/autism-and-neurodiversity
