Spocan (Supporting parents of children with additional needs)

We have been established since 2012 and are a support group run by parents, for parents/carers, professionals or anybody with experience or interest in living or working with children/young people who themselves live with conditions (diagnosed or not) such as Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD) as well as others.

We recognise that living with the symptoms of these conditions can be difficult for the family as well as the child/young person and aim to provide information and support which may help alleviate some of this.

If you feel you would like support yourself, or could offer your support to others, please either contact us or come along to one of our monthly meetings. We are a friendly, informal group and you can be sure of a warm welcome where refreshments are available.

We have formed links with Churchfield Primary School and Turnford Secondary School.
