Neurodevelopmental pathway – North East Essex
Have you found it difficult to navigate different services and access the right support for you and your child?
Are you tired of repeating your story to different professionals?
Have you been waiting for an assessment and do not know where to get support in the meantime?
The term Neurodevelopment describes the growth and development of the nervous system including the brain. Autism, ADHD and learning disabilities are examples of neurodevelopmental disorders. While each child/young person is unique, neurodevelopmental disorders may mean that you or your child/young person requires more support with their development, behaviour, emotion, learning ability or self control.
