STOCKTON UNITED FOR CHANGE (SUFC)

SUFC are a group of parents & carers of children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and disabled children aged 0-25 who work alongside our local authority, education, health service and other service providers to make sure the services they plan, commission, deliver and monitor meet the needs of children and families. They do this through active parent participation and ensuring parents have a voice.

EarlyBird

EarlyBird is for parents whose child has received a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and is of pre-school age (not yet of statutory school age).The programme aims to support parents in the period between diagnosis and school placement, empowering and helping them facilitate their child’s social communication and appropriate behaviour in their natural environment. It also helps parents to establish good practice in handling their child at an early age, so as to pre-empt the development of inappropriate behaviours. For more information see NAS
