BECOME A MEMBER

The Social Communication Pathway (SCP) Post-Diagnostic Groups (PDG) are workshops that are offered to parents and carers of children or young people who have received a formal diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Condition from Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT).

The sessions are delivered in-person through a PowerPoint presentation, in addition to some small group work that provide opportunities for discussing examples.

The workshops rotate monthly between the following four topics:

Autism and Well-being : This is an introduction to autism, where we will consider what autism means to your child and family.
Communication Workshop : In this session, we will consider language and communication strategies to help us understand what behaviour your child may be communicating and how we can support them.
Sensory Workshop : This session focuses on sensory differences amongst different people and how sensory differences can present in autistic people.
Understanding and Working with the Education System : In this session, we look at what education support is available in Manchester to autistic children and their families.

Below are some articles and events on our website that refer to the SCP PDGs. Please click on a specific event to learn more and to book your place.
