WASP is a service with a unique approach to supporting the emotional well-being of children and young people. It’s aimed at children and young people dealing with anxiety and low mood due to an Autism Spectrum Condition or other neuro-developmental conditions, whether diagnosed or not.
Children and young people aged 0 – 25 with an identified need.
At times agreed with individual families
WASP is a targeted service and referrals need to come from a professional involved with the family.
WASP is open to those facing challenges related to social interactions, communication, and other neuro-developmental disorders – even if there’s no official diagnosis. It’s all about providing the right kind of support.
After gathering initial information, our Participation Coordinator steps in to have a chat about individual needs and preferences. Based on this, they tweak the support to fit just right.
For parents, this could mean a range of things – from regular phone calls to Expert Parent experience training and online courses. We’re all about nurturing peer-to-peer support, allowing parents who’ve been through similar experiences to lend a helping hand. Our aim is to build resilience and confidence, empowering parents to support their young ones in seeking appropriate help in the future.
For children and young people our support includes things like Lego Therapy sessions or activities centred around The Big Life journal. All things that can boost resilience, help with transitioning, or support self-esteem.
We work closely with parents and young people to set clear goals and outcomes for the family. We’re here to understand, support, and help everyone thrive.
