PostSubject: Outreach ASD Sessions   11/6/2007, 2:43 am

Well, the time has finally come! yahoo

Charlotte's school has in the region of 14 ASD kids currently studying full-time and our local Autistic school is sending a bunch of Outreach workers to come and meet us all and hold 5 2 hour sessions with just us parents.

I've known about this for months and I've been impatiently counting the weeks ever since I first got invited to the sessions. By the reaction from most of the people I've mentioned this to, it's virtually unheard of, so once again I feel very grateful to be living where I do.

Now the reason I'm saying all this (yes, there IS a point!) I was wondering if we could all use it to our advantage. Does anybody have anything they really want an answer to that I might be able to ask? These people deal (like us!) every day with Autistic kids, and they just MIGHT have a solution......

The first session is on Friday, so there is time to think about it. Just let me know..... Smile

They are going to be sorry they invited me along!

I have so many questions already, that any more won't make much difference!

Roll on Friday.... hooray

This was just what I expected.
Absolutely brilliant!
This first week was a full-on in-depth analysis of exactly what Autism and Asperger's really is.
Every single characteristic was broken down, and it was really surprising at the overlap between the two, I knew that there would be one, but I didn't realise just how much it is! It made me realise just how difficult it must have been to properly dx T, for example.
It felt a bit like my first time here, after my initial explanation "My little Charlotte has PDA etc etc etc" and how PDA presents itself, I simply didn't have to explain anything else. They all knew!
We're talking about communication next week....Should be good. Very Happy
