Creating Opportunities & Celebrating Difference

AP Cymru provides a toolkit of guidance, knowledge and understanding through lived-experience via our Parent Support & Wellbeing Services, Family Support & Wellbeing Programme and our CPD accredited Neurodiversity Training. This enables and empowers the parent/carer with the necessary expertise and knowledge to remove societal barriers that may prevent the child/young person from flourishing and reaching their full potential. It has become evident during the 12 years of supporting children and young people that other family members often present with neurodivergent characteristics; this may result in AP Cymru providing support to recently identified extended family members. AP Cymru are striving to make the world a better place for neurodivergent children and young people.

Embracing Neurodiversity: Empowering Teachers, Trainee Teachers and Teaching Assistants (TA) for Inclusive Education Campaign

In a world that thrives on diversity, it is essential that we foster an inclusive environment in our schools…and this is exactly what Clare-Anna and her daughter Dakota are campaigning to do.

Dakota has been on the waiting list for an assessment for ADHD and autism for two years, having struggled through school. Clare-Anna says there is a lack of support for children in schools across Wales, as there are currently no compulsory modules on additional learning needs for those training to become a teacher. This has led Clare-Anna to start a petition calling for a review into the Additional Learning Needs (ALN) policies in schools, with the hope that all teachers, trainee teachers and teaching assistants (TA) will have compulsory training, so that others like her daughter can get the additional support they need.

As a Welsh organisation, we echo the Future Generations Act in contemplating the long-term impact of our decisions, to work better with people, communities and each other; by recognising the unique strengths and talents of neurodiverse children and young people, and ensuring that they are fully included in all areas, especially educational settings. We must also highlight Article 23 and 24 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), and underline the fundamental element that every child has rights.

AP Cymru are a supporting hand and advocate for children, young people and their families in their own personal journeys of self-discovery. We aim to ensure that all children and young people are treated fairly and get equal opportunities – their voice matters.

Please join us by supporting Clare-Ann and Dakota on their campaign journey by joining their Facebook page: Neurodiversity UNMASKED and signing the petition today.
