  • Children do not require a formal diagnosis prior to attending.

(We run a number of groups often with younger children in the morning and older children in the afternoon depending on numbers and the range of issues children present with. We do have a philosophy that meal-times in families often have a range of ages eating at one time and this can be mirrored in some of our groups.
