Could pay for an autistic child to attend a stay and play session. These sessions give children the chance to do what they do best – play.
Is what it costs to run our Information Advice Line for one hour. Providing and listening ear and vital support to those who are affected by autism.
Could help pay for a family to attend an advice session. These sessions help families that have reached a crisis point and offer a helping hand to build a stronger future.
May give a brother or sister of an autistic child the chance to attend a sibling workshop. Sibling workshops allow children to learn more about autism and provide a great opportunity to share their feelings.
Could provide a 1:1 specialist support session to a family with an autistic child. This would help them develop long term coping strategies, improving their day to day lives.
Could fund a 6 week training course for a parent. This course will help families to understand autism, ask questions they may have and meet other parents.
