Description

Service Description

Short breaks enable disabled children and young people to do many of the activities non-disabled children take for granted. They help them have fun, try new activities, gain independence and make friends.

Short breaks are one of the services most commonly requested by parents of disabled children. These services also offer parents and carers the much-needed break that they deserve from their usual caring responsibilities.

Additional Information

This group is a drop-in group for parents of children with Aspergers or High Functioning Autism. The group invites speakers and gives parents a chance to meet and talk to other parents of children who are asking questions such as why am I different? Why do I find making friends hard? Professionals running the group explore issues such as how and what to tell siblings. Referrals need to be made by professionals. The group runs first Tuesday of every month from 1.00pm – 3.00pm during term time.
