Following a competitive tender process, Shropshire Council and Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group have selected Autism Midlands to continue to provide support to Shropshire families with children aged 0-18 years who are on the autism spectrum and those with ADHD alongside their autism. The new contract will run until April 2019.

The service will continue to offer families advice, information, training and support, and will continue to be accessible to families at the earliest opportunity (pre-diagnosis). Information, advice and training will remain available to practitioners supporting children with autism and autism/ADHD.

The service will work closely with the new Emotional Health and Well Being Service and the support offered in schools, to ensure that a coordinated approach is available to children and families.
