        Neurodiversity Early Years & KS1 Service

        The Neurodiversity Early Years and Key Stage 1 Service at the ADHD Foundation is dedicated to promoting early identification and intervention for young children presenting with emerging characteristics of neurodevelopmental conditions.

        Our expert team build knowledge and skills within the early years and Key Stage 1 workforce through training, coaching and play based therapeutic intervention. Our relationship driven approach encourages mutual exploration of the child’s needs and support required.

        Our aim is to ensure that neurodiversity is recognised, celebrated, and supported, taking a needs-led approach across the early years and Key Stage 1.
