Autism with Attitude dance team qualify for the European championships in Germany!

On Sunday the Autism with Attitude dance team who have performed at Autism’s got Talent the last few years have competed in their first competition at the South East street dance championships.
It was their first competition and given that the SEN dance world is currently not very widespread, they were the first dance team with special needs to take part in the event.
Not only that, their performance placed them 3rd overall in their category.
The first special needs team to ever place in the top 3 at the event.
Because they were placed in the top 3 of their category they have qualified for the following event (which are just unbelievably mind blowing that they have achieved this)
They have qualified to compete at the European championships next year in Germany and have the opportunity to represent the UK on an international platform.
Just even saying that sentence is so monumental that they have managed to achieve this for themselves, the impact that they have had on the mainstream world by achieving all of this is just huge and they literally making history acting as ambassadors for all those with special needs around the country.
Congratulations to Jonathon Baron and the team Whoop!!!!!!
Anna Kennedy OBE and Autism Community Stand Up To Julian Assange

Anna Kennedy OBE and Autism Community Stand Up To Julian Assange

It was earlier today reported that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is set for a crunch meeting with British authorities, this comes just days after he came under hot water from autism activists on social networking site Twitter.

Leading autism ambassador and charity founder Anna Kennedy OBE jumped in to caution Assange who tweeted:

“It’s OK for Theresa May to be awkward, unfeeling or even autistic. I prefer bad liars to good ones. The problem is that her policies match.”

Kennedy tweeted ‘You are perfectly entitled to express an opinion @JulianAssange about the Prime Minister please donot use #autism as a term of abuse totally unacceptable! ‘

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability or difference that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to, other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them.

Another autism activist said “it is throwaway comments like his that keep poor attitudes towards autism going despite all the good work”

Making such jokes or references to autism has in the past been deemed very inappropriate and insensitive.

Getting the most out of your EHCP

Getting the most out of your EHCP

Your recent conference just was an emotional day for us as the talks we went to, from experiences by parents, shows how important it is to find organisations such as yourselves and not to be frightened to stand up for all children and know where to get the help. It’s been eight years for my son and I know we have many more years of battles to come simply because he does not fit boxes. Thank you again.

It’s Autism Dance Day!

It’s Autism Dance Day!

Hillingdon Manor School showing us their moves – this is where the story began. Hillingdon Manor School was set up by Anna Kennedy OBE all those years ago to help children including her own, who were lost and excluded by the system.  Now Anna Kennedy Online are proud to raise awareness through Autism Dance Day.

As Anna would say “strike a pose whether it be in your office, warehouse, school, college, lounge at home wherever the mood takes you and post your photos on Facebook, tag me on Twitter @Annakennedy1 #autismdanceday The last few years have been soooo much fun raising awareness across the UK  and overseas.Come on everyone join in.”

Last year some of the autism groups created sponsored dance events and got their groove on to raise money for their local autism charity or our very own AnnaKennedyonline
