Getting a formal diagnosis of Autism, ADHD, or any other condition, can be a significant experience. For some people, this could be welcomed or a relief to have their diagnosis confirmed; for other families it might take a while to get used to this news.
It can be difficult to know where to go for support after a diagnosis – to start you and your family on this journey, we have put together some post-diagnostic feedback packs signposting resources and support available in Leeds. These packs aim to help you learn more about your/your child’s own individual strengths and needs and see examples of how others understand and advocate their own needs.
Many people come to view their diagnoses as part of their identity – we hope these packs help you and your family on your journey of discovering what your/your child’s diagnosis might mean to you/your family and help you understand the part it plays in your lives.
The majority of the information included in these packs is also on this Neurodiversity Information Hub website, across different sections. However, these packs are designed to be easier to process and work through following a specific diagnosis in a specific age group. While the packs are split into school aged groups, the ages are only offered as a guide. You may find the older/younger aged packs more relevant for your individual circumstances.
