World Autism Awareness Day is an internationally recognised day which takes place on 2nd April every year. In the week of 30 March - 5 April surrounding this day the public is encouraged to take part in World Autism Awareness Week – a full seven days where people across the UK can take part in activities to raise money and awareness for the National Autistic Society.
The Kedleston Group has schools and homes the support young people living with social, emotional and mental health challenges and autism so naturally we like to take part to join the celebrations.
Our Arc Oakbridge School is a specialist school in central Birmingham for children and young people with High Functioning Autism. The school offers a calm, low arousal, safe, positive and nurturing place where young people with a primary need of high functioning autism (ASC), including Asperger’s Syndrome and associated complex needs can learn and grow.
Here is a great picture of the team during their briefing last week, all wearing blue to show their appreciation and support! As you can see, the briefing has to happen via video conference at the moment but that doesn’t stop everyone getting involved.
Great work team!
