Young person's offer

Feedback Workshop for Young People:

Alder Hey NHS Trust will offer all secondary school aged young people (aged 11-19 yrs) who have received an ASD diagnosis the opportunity to attend a feedback workshop led by Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust Autism Team to gain an understanding of autism (delivered as age-appropriate groups to young people aged 11-14yrs and 15-19yrs). This will be delivered online to aid accessibility and will run every 4 weeks for each age range. The programme has been designed by young people to give useful information about ASD and the impact on a young person’s life. Resources will be shared and the young person will have the opportunity to ask questions to trained clinicians skilled in ASD.
