This is the parent support group of CHIPS . We are a small, friendly, informal group, run by parents for parents. Our group is varied – our children/young people suffer from a wide range of conditions including (but not limited to !) ASD, epilepsy, chromosomal abnormalities, ADHD and have mild to severe learning difficulties.

If you are a parent/ carer of children with Additional or Special Needs you would be very welcome to join us, even if you live outside the CHIPS catchment area . Children are also welcome, too. There is no pressure to attend regularly or even stay for the whole session – we know that your free time can be limited and unpredictable! We have speakers at most meetings- these can be informative, or just for fun. You can check the ChatSS website for the latest timetable of speakers but please do join us even if they are not of interest to you at the moment as there is always time for a chat and some refreshments at every meeting.
