Post-Diagnostic Support

Post-Diagnostic Support

The Edinburgh Practice offers a wide range of post diagnostic support services delivered by a multidisciplinary team. Whether you or your child has been assessed for Autism or ADHD with us at The Edinburgh Practice or with another service provider, we offer a range of  post diagnostic support services for children, adults, parents/carers and families delivered at the practice and/or in educational settings.

Educational Psychology

Educational Psychology is available for children, young people and parents/carers.

We offer consultations for children and young people to help identify their strengths and challenges as well as the supports they find helpful at home and school. The session aims to support children and young people to understand their diagnosis, using age-appropriate resources

Support for Parents and Carers

For parents and carers who are looking for support and advice to:

  • Understanding neurodevelopmental conditions including Autism and ADHD
  • Playing and interacting with their child
  • Understanding and managing increased anxiety
  • Strategies to support emotional regulation
  • Understanding and supporting sensory needs
  • Awareness of masking
  • Supports for home and school including a safe space, visual timetable, predictable routines and sensory supports
  • The Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) process including SHANARRI and Child Planning Meetings (CPMs).
  • Preparing for Child Planning Meetings. Our Educational Psychologist can attend CPMs, if requested by parents (with school’s permission)
  • Signposting to resources and supports

 

 

Support for Independent Schools

Consultation and advice to school staff regarding neurodevelopmental conditions including information regarding neuroaffirming practice.  Sessions can be tailored to the schools’ needs and requirements.

Speech & Language Therapy

Educational Psychology is available for children, young people and parents/carers.

Support for children, young people and their families to understand autism, with the option to have information adapted to support language and communication differences.

A neuroaffirming approach which can help an individual understand their communication style as well as building an understanding of communication in autism and developing strategies to support the autistic person.

Nutrition

If you or your child are experiencing difficulties with eating or nutrition believed to be linked to neurodiversity, such as ARFID, we have a dietetics service at the practice. Our specialist Dietician provides thorough assessment and a collaborative intervention plan specifically tailored to individual needs.

Occupational Therapy

If you or your child are experiencing difficulties with daily living skills such as self-care, meaningful activity, routine or structure believed to be related to neurodiversity we have an occupational therapy service at the practice. Our specialist Occupational Therapist provides thorough assessment and a collaborative plan for intervention tailored to individual needs in the home, school, further education or work environment. Our occupational therapist also completes sensory assessments and recommendations to help identify any sensory sensitivities clients are experiencing.

Clinical Psychology

Our Clinical Psychology services are available for children, young people and adults.

We offer psychoeducation and support in understanding the strengths and challenges that can come with neurodiversity and understanding how to best manage these to allow you or your child to thrive. Our Clinical Psychologists will work with you to build an individual profile of your neurodiverse needs and support you to find ways to meet these needs.

Evidence-based psychological therapy for co-existing mental health difficulties, such as anxiety or low mood, is also available at the practice.

We can offer a space for you or your child to work through some of the challenges that can arise from navigating a neurotypical world as someone who is neurodiverse.

 

A Systemic Family Therapy Approach to Post Diagnostic Support

Systemic therapy is available for children, young people, adults and families.

Our systemic therapist would first meet the person who has received the diagnosis along with the people they are in close relationships with. For a young person this might involve parents and siblings and for adults their partners and/or children if this was felt helpful.

The approach would be to work towards a shared understanding of the meaning of the diagnosis for each person, how the diagnosis influences patterns of relationship, does it bring more closeness or distance? What does it change? Does it change how each person makes sense of patterns of behaviour and response between them?

The aim of developing this shared understanding between family members is to identify new possibilities for interaction and response and to strengthen the  existing  bonds of attachment and resilience present in families.

🎉We are happy to be welcoming our new Play Therapist to Team TEP, Ellen Stevens! 
🧸Ellen specialises in psychodynamic play therapy with children between the ages of 3 and 11, with experience supporting children with a range of support needs such as anxiety, difficulties with emotional regulation, ADHD, autism, communication difficulties, experience of bullying and self-esteem challenges.
💛 Ellen’s therapeutic approach is child-centred and non-directive, meaning the child leads the way in their play and chooses toys and activities as they wish. She responds to the child’s lead in a non-judgemental and attuned way to help further deepen the child’s exploration of their inner-world through play.
