During our Autism Awareness Week, we raised £1570 for the Warren Road SEN Department. A huge thank you to all parents, staff and children for their efforts.
At Warren Road we celebrate difference and as part of Autism Awareness Week we will be fundraising for our school SEN (Special Educational Needs) department.
During the week children, staff and parents will be able to take part in a variety of events to enhance awareness, celebrate difference and fundraise.
A wonderful group of Warren Road parents got together as a working party and have helped to plan the following:
Wednesday 29th 9:30-10:30am Parents will have the opportunity to listen to Helen Dyer a speaker from CASPA. CASPA is a rapidly growing charity that was set up in 2002, working with children, young people and families affected by autism. She will do an introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorder and how CASPA sees it and how they support / acknowledge the difficulties of having a child with higher functioning autism (i.e. attending mainstream etc). She will then open the floor to facilitated discussions. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions regarding Autism during the talk but if you have any specific questions please let me know at time of booking so I can forward these onto Helen to help her ensure she has time to answer your questions.
Help the Warren Road community to ‘Accept difference, not indifference’ and raise money to support all of our children to achieve their true potential.
