Post-Diagnostic Support Services
Post-Diagnostic Support Group
Our Post-Diagnostic Support Group (PDSG) takes place every six weeks on a Wednesday between 12-2pm at Chester Race Course. The PDSG is for those who are aged 18+ and have been diagnosed through our service. Parents of children who have been diagnosed by Axia are welcome to attend, however the content of the sessions is aimed at adults.
We encourage members of the group to share their thoughts and experiences as this can be helpful for everyone. In order that people feel safe to do this, we ask that you are respectful when engaging in conversation.
Each PDSG is led by a guest speaker, covering a range of topics. Some examples of previous topics are ‘Autism and Later Life’, ‘Stress, PTSD and Autism’ and ‘Accessing Mental Health Services’.
Every session is recorded and uploaded to our website so that you can rewatch or catch up on anything you might have missed. This is available to everyone, not just members of the group. Axia Playlist
The Anime Amigos
The Anime Amigos is a group made up of Calvin, Ren, Reece and Elliot who produce monthly podcasts discussing the world of Anime. This, along with their live streams and game / film reviews, makes up part of our post-diagnostic support. Calvin has also written a book ‘The Nerd Consultant’s Guide to Anime’.
Adults, and the parents of children, who receive a diagnosis through our service will be able to join our closed Facebook Group. Members are encouraged to share posts that they have found useful, and there is often interactive discussion around a range of topics.
We share Axia news and events, as well as other information via our Instagram page. This is a useful tool and many people have been able to connect with our service in this way.
