Established in May 2017 a group of parents/carers meet monthly on a Friday evening in Wollaton to offer support and share advice, for children on the autistic spectrum. They are there for parents and carers at all stages of their journey, whether you have a child with a diagnosis or not ( as they understand the process of getting an assessment/ diagnosis can be a lonely one).
To date they have over 40 members from Wollaton and the surrounding areas with children in both special and mainstream schools. They have a Whatsapp group, where people share information and advice and offer support. Many new connections and friendships have been made for both adults and children and there are now regular or one-off activities which are open to all. They have started to work alongside some schools and members support each other with school meetings as they believe supportive and positive relationships between school staff and families are always in the best interests of our children.
Even if you don’t want to come to the group events ( even though we are all lovely, honestly!) they warmly encourage you to get in touch so we can connect you to information and perhaps other individuals.
