A volunteer led charity based in Crawley has been able to invite a high profile speaker at one of their scheduled meetings with the help of a £250 donation from us. Autism Support Crawley is a support group for parents and carers of children and adults on the Autistic Spectrum or who have other social communication difficulties.
The group has invited David Burns, author of two successful school guides, to speak at one of their meetings to inspire and offer supportive advice to the group. The guides explain how classrooms can be made Autism friendly for primary and secondary schools and how to make the students, teachers, parents and carers feel as comfortable as possible. The meeting will be opened to members of the public, including teachers and classroom assistants, to help as many people as possible.
Maria Cook, Chairwoman of Autism Support Crawley, said: “We want to say a huge thank you to Taylor Wimpey for the donation towards Autism Support Crawley. The work we do is so important and we want to provide as much support to parents and carers as we can. We look forward to welcoming David to the meeting as he will be able to provide vital professional information and advice to everyone and will make the idea of going to school less intimidating.”
