April is Autism Awareness Month

Although CPMP is predominantly anADHD Charity. ADHD is a neuro development condition, which can co exist with a number of other neuro developmental conditions such as Autism, Tourette’s, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia.

It is important to us to raise the awareness and acceptance of all neuro developmental conditions.

The 28th March-3 April is World Autism Acceptance week. The National Autistic Society has information on nationwide celebration events, fund raising and challenges to help you show your support.

1 in every 100 people in the UK has an autism diagnosis (around 700,000 people), and there will be many more individuals who are autistic but have gone undiagnosed. Between 20-50% of people with ADHD are also autistic. April is a great time to learn more about autism, help educate others and dispel stereotypes, and celebrate the autistic people in our lives. So “Light it up #REDinstead” or “Wear gold for Autism” this month.

  • Group meetings are “adult only” time 
  • find friendship
  • find support
  • share ideas, experiences and concerns
  • reduce isolation

These meetings are relaxed and informal, usually between 5 and 10 people from all walks of life. You don’t need to book, please just turn up. On arrival you will be welcomed by one of the organisers. We understand it can be daunting to come along to a group for the first time and we want to make you feel as comfortable as possible.

Living with someone who is living with ADHD , affects every part of life and can be very isolating. Coming to a support group to share coping strategies and meeting people who are dealing with the same sort of issues as you is supportive and motivating. Come along to meet new friends, share information and have fun!

All meetings are confidential, no judgements are made and no issue is too delicate.

If you have any questions or worries please do not hesitate in contacting us on 07480824868.
