Neurodevelopmental help: Environments, transitions, making friends

Routines form an important part of all of our daily lives. Think about when you eat your lunch, do your food shop or visit a family member. We generally stick to similar routines each day and each week. The people around us and the places we go to support these routines but they also are an important part of helping us to thrive. They often provide stability, security and consistency. We can all find unexpected events unsettling at times.

For children and young people with a neurodevelopmental need they may need these routines and rules to be clear. They may also need more preparation to be given to support changes or transitions between activities.

The resources on this page are aimed at things adults can do each day to support with these routines and how we can create environments that support children and young people.
