Family Work and Child Psychology Support

Welcome to Spectrum Support.

Spectrum is passionate about the work we do with families and carers of children with Autism, additional needs and disabilities. We provide that support in a number of ways. Our charity provides ongoing support for children from birth to 18 years of age- families do not need an ‘official’ diagnosis to access our resources, they just need to be registered with us. Our membership is free.

We are huge advocates of peer to peer learning, sharing the knowledge and experiences of like-minded families on similar journeys. In addition to this, we are also able to provide access to both our family workers and child psychology support.

  • Family Work

    Practical help and emotional support to the families we work with, from early years forward on the path  to diagnosis

  • EHCP (Education Healthcare Plan)

    Assisting those who need more support than is available through SEN support, covering educational, health and social needs 
  • Child Psychology

    Helping children and young people with a range of mental and behavioural problems as well as interventions

  • DLA, PIP and Family Fund

    Assisting families with guidance on DLA (Disability Living Allowance), PIP (Personal Independence Payment) and Family Fund.

Spectrum also supports families in a variety of further ways such as:

  • Providing fun-filled weekend sessions where children and their families can find inclusion and understanding.
  • Exciting day excursions, dedicated monthly sessions and events.
  • MAX cards which offer discounted admission to a variety of over 12,000 venues across the UK.
  • Opportunities for children to complete recognised national awards such as The Arts Award.

Through the work that we do with families in this area, we are delighted to have won both the Cambridge Live Community Group award alongside the Luminus Community Inspiration award. Spectrum is also referenced on Pinpoint’s website and a number of our volunteers have experience working alongside Pinpoint to help support children in school and at home.

Spectrum's support throughout childhood.

Due to the nature of disabilities, it is not always apparent from birth that a child may need extra support. Spectrum exists to support children and families through their journey regardless of when their journey begins. Many of our volunteers can offer invaluable support through personal and professional experiences. Spectrum strives to create an environment where these children can practise their interpersonal skills without judgement or reprisal.
