We’re proud to announce the new Hull and East Riding Children’s Neurodiversity Service has officially launched.
This service is a true partnership, where the main* and other children’s services**, work together with parents and their child/young person and family to understand what support is needed and how help, advice and support can improve outcomes for their child/young person and their family.
The service has been co-produced with local children, young people, parents, carers, and staff who work to support them. Parents and young people (and staff on their behalf), in Hull and the East Riding will be able to request support, and access early help, information and advice, and a range of coordinated services based on the neurodiverse needs of their child/young person.
This service is not dependent upon a child/young person having a formal diagnosis; however, it will support children and young people to access further assessment if and when needed.
Support will be coordinated by the service and/or a Named Worker for children and young people with more complex needs, who will meet with the child/young person and their parents/carer to facilitate an individual discussion around the child/young persons’ needs. This discussion will take place within 4 weeks from the request for support.
Based upon this, the service and key partners from across Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire will recommend and provide support designed to empower and meet the individual needs of the child/young person, and their parents/carers.
Requests for support can be made directly by young people, parents and carers themselves (and staff/professionals, with consent) in person, via the telephone, or online.
* The main services include Children’s Community Team for Learning Disabilities (CTLD), Autism and ADHD assessment and diagnosis, Children’s Sensory and Children’s SEND Sleep Support services.
** Other services include, all services providing health, education, care and support to children and young people with neurodiverse needs. Information about these services can be found on the Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire Local Offer Websites:
