In response to a growing need to identify and support neurodivergence across the UK prison population, PSUK have developed a new specialist service, offering assessment, consultancy and staff awareness training for those living or working in a forensic setting. Working in collaboration with some of the UK's leading experts in the neurodivergence field to advance and expand our practice, we are now able to diagnose or identify salient markers of the following neurodivergent conditions; all of which can impact on an individual's risk and responsivity to interventions:
Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Learning Disability / Impaired Cognitive Functioning (IQ), Impaired Executive Functioning, Memory Loss / Cognitive Decline (as a marker of dementia or other brain trauma), Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia and Tourette Syndrome.
In the longer term, we are looking to provide specialist interventions for those diagnosed with neurodevelopmental disorders; using a neurodiversity-affirmative approach to assist prisoners in effectively managing the emotions and behaviours associated with their condition.
Please get in touch if you would like to hear more about the services we can offer or if you wish to instruct one of our team.
