<LisaSeemanKest> ?

Abi .. learning disabilities has slightly different format with note - happy to be consistent

Jennie - can avoid brackets around even though usually a convention

Abi yes to avoid breaking up reading flow

<LisaSeemanKest> A(also known as “attention deficit disorder -( ADD)”

<LisaSeemanKest> and Attention deficit (hyperactivity) disorder -( AD(H)D) )

<LisaSeemanKest> Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) refers to a range of conditions characterised by some degree of impaired social behaviour, communication and language, and a narrow range of interests and activities that are both unique to the individual and carried out repetitively.
