During Anti Bullying Week I am sure there will be a lot of focus on the act of bullying, the impact of bullying and how to deal with bullying. So I would like to remind you now about the power you hold, the power of your words, of your actions. Not just in standing against bullying or to deter you from potentially being a bully but also in how you can make someone feel valued, accepted and worthwhile
More recently, Anna and her colleague Austin Hughes met with the Department of Health to share results of her survey on autism diagnosis. Out of 2,000 respondents, more than half said they’d waited five or more years to get a diagnosis for themselves or a loved one.
With the AMAZING support that we have received from people such as ‘West Ham United’ we are able to offer our very own Helpline. This helpline is there for ALL to access and if you ask us to call you back it is FREE! we endeavour to answer all autism related questions and offer support via it. Sometimes it can just be a case of a parent/family wanting a question answering or even just looking for some comfort and reassurance at a tough time (we have ALL had them). Other times the service becomes more than this and the full weight of our Behavioural Support and Legal advice swings into action.
With the amazing performers ready in the wings, audience anticipating and special guests seated it was once again time for ‘AUTISM’S GOT TALENT’
From the ’Rocking’ on a drum kit to the tap dancing along to a Will i am track, once again, this night sure went with a BANG!
