We offer coaching sessions either in the home or by phone. One of our Autism/ADHD Specialist Coaches will work with you on a weekly basis to help support any difficulties to improve your family life. All of our coaches have relevant qualifications and first-hand personal experience of living with these conditions.

What is Coaching?

We provide you and your family a confidential and professional service, with a healthy dose of parental experience thrown in. We are non-judgmental, supportive and adaptable, we want the plans and strategies to work for you and your situation, if something doesn't work then we'll try again.

How does it work?

Getting a referral
 
  • Parents and carers can self-refer as private clients and pay for the sessions themselves. A report will not be issued.
  • Parents and carers can be referred by a professional involved in their child or family's care. This is often done by the child's school or a family support worker who will also seek appropriate funding to cover the sessions. A report will be issued.

To find out more about either option please contact our coaching administrator on 01727 833963 or email coaching@add-vance.org for a referral form.

Initial Assessment

  • A one hour Initial Assessment with your Specialist Coach can be arranged to assess and discuss the specific needs and difficulties your family is experiencing.
  • The appointment can take place in your own home or by phone.

Specialist Coaching

  • Each session would last for one hour and will include a plan to be implemented during the following week.
