Clearly Speaking is an approachable, professional, caring support service for families and front-line professionals. We specialise in providing both help and advice, with services and intervention for those families living with special needs Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Aspergers Syndrome and all other associated difficulties like D.A.M.P, ADHD, specific learning issues like Dyslexia as well as Tourette’s syndrome and many more.

Clearly Speaking will ensure that all parents, carers, and young people up to the age of 25 can ‘self-refer' via our website and receive access to all our organisations specialist services free of charge.

Families can also be referred by any of the local statutory agencies such as GPs, CAMs, Schools and nurseries, healthcare, social care, Connexions and youth advisory services etc… Since Clearly Speaking was founded 16 years ago, we are very proud to say, we are one of the only support services in the country to achieve a 100% success rate for tribunals and court cases ranging over thousands of families and young people with a wide variety of issues and cases thanks to the hard work of our special needs consultant Janet Nicks. 




We offer a range of practical, specialist clubs and activities alongside our advice, guidance and key worker intervention and support. 

Each of our activity clubs are designed especially for those on the ASD spectrum. Every member of our service is supported by a highly vetted, and trained volunteer to support your son or daughter.

Although we support from birth to 25, we are now seeing a huge need for over 25 and 60+ we have started small support groups for those newly diagnosed with autism as well as activity groups for gardening, art and music. 

We can offer huge discounts on various activities like theatre, cinema, bowling, princes trust, green park just to name a few.
