Help to improve local Autism and ADHD services for children and young people

May 16, 2024

After hearing about issues such as access and information for people trying to get support for children and young people with Autism (ASD) and/or Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), we will be investigating Autism and ADHD services in Birmingham for a forthcoming report.

We would like to hear from parents/carers of young people who have experiences of ASD and ADHD support services so we can:

  • Listen to your experience of getting, or of trying to get, an assessment and diagnosis.
  • Understand the barriers or challenges you face when going through the ASD and ADHD assessment and diagnostic pathway. 
  • Understand what support and advice offered before and during the assessment process.
  • Understand the support and advice offered after diagnosis.

 Your views will provide valuable information to the NHS to improve the ASD and ADHD assessment and diagnostic pathway, and will inform the ‘Support Whilst Waiting’ offer by the Birmingham SEND Local Area Partnership.

Please spare 5-10 minutes to complete this confidential survey by 31st May.

Autism can be known as Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It is a lifelong neurodevelopmental condition that affects how people perceive, communicate and interact with the world. ADHD relates to social, emotional and mental health difficulties. ADHD stands for Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder and is a range of behaviours associated with difficulties with attention span, including restlessness and hyperactivity.
