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 Behaviours. 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 500+ members who live in North Devon, Torridge and the surrounding areas.
