Autism support service
Funded through Warwickshire County Council and delivered across Coventry and Warwickshire, this new service will sit alongside CW Mind’s children and young people’s department, CAMHS Rise and Specialist CAMHS. This service is to strengthen existing ASD support within current services.
Please keep an eye on our website and social media channels for updates and spread the news to raise awareness.
The service has several support options:
* Pre-diagnosis & Post-diagnosis
This may be in the form of 1:1 support for children and young people, group support with others experiencing similar difficulties and informal social groups in community venues.
* Parent/carer coaching and training
This will include the development of a network for peer to peer support for parents and carers, as well as opportunities for training on topics related to an Autism diagnosis.
How to make a referral
To be eligible for the service, the child or young person must have either a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder or be on the waiting list for an assessment with the Rise Neurodevelopment team.
Children, young people and families should not be open to CAMHS for therapeutic work or social care/early help.
1) Referrals should be via the child or young person’s education provision (e.g. SENCo, Educational Psychology, Pastoral lead etc.)
2) The referral will also need to be accompanied by a parent/carer rated Dimensions tool report. This can be found here and can be saved on your own device/printed to supplement your referral.
Once a referral is received a member of the team will be in touch with you to discuss the next steps.
Please complete and send the referral form which you can
