Children's services

Suspected neurodiversity

To access the most personalised and timely support for a child or young person with suspected neurodiversity, someone who knows them well needs to complete the neurodiversity profiling tool with them and their family first.

The profiling tool can help to pinpoint specific areas of impact and identify ways to support them with neurodiverse needs and differences straight away. The actions identified from the profiling need to be completed, and strategies and reasonable adjustments trialled for a sustained period of over 12 weeks.

If you are still struggling with how to support a young person after this, we would invite you to speak to our multi-disciplinary consultation team to access support.

For more information, visit the Parent Carers Cornwall website. For support, email our Neurodiversity Team.
