Many services will be experiencing disruption at this time. Please contact them directly for further information.

North Devon Forum for Autistic Spectrum Conditions and ADHD

We are a parent/carer led support group. In March 1992 a group of parents and professionals, concerned with children on the autistic spectrum, formed the North Devon Forum for Autism and Related Behaviorus. The scope soon widened to include adults. In 2015 the name of the forum was updated to reflect the whole spectrum of conditions and also ADHD (incorporating ADD).

Membership is free and is for people, their families, carers and professionals who live and/or work with ASC/ADHD. Members receive a regular newsletter, access to all events and our specialist library. We support 800+ members who live in North Devon, Torridge and the surrounding areas.

In April 2017 we became a registered charity.


Devon County Council uses an SEND flag to list services which define themselves as suitable for children and young people with SEND. These are part of Devon's SEND Local Offer. We recommend that you contact the service provider to make sure the service is suitable for your child or young person.
