We will be holding our next group meeting on Friday 25th October at the Willow Centre on Brookfield Road, Ashford.
10.30 till 12.30.
If you haven't been before, be lovely to see you. Remember we support families who are still going through the diagnosis process as well as those with an official diagnosis.
Pop along if you can,
Austin is a former actor/singer who in his spare time would volunteer and
work in and around many disabilities. Not happy with some of what he saw, Austin developed his own workshops.
His interest in autism grew from a friend that was on the ‘spectrum’. He
learned how to build strong bonds and understanding by putting himself in the shoes of the person he’s working with – seeing life from their point of view.
After suffering a serious head/brain injury in 2007 Austin was left with his
own disabilities which brought about a change in his career. Working within autism became his main focus as he trained and enjoyed working for the NAS.
He is currently Senior Behavioural Support and Training Officer for Anna Kennedy Online.
Austin has been delivering training with ASD Ashford over the last 2 years, and has helped many of our members. He has always been hugely supportive of what we do as group, and it's fair to say he has been taken to the hearts of our families.
It was with great pleasure that in February 2014, he came on board as our Patron.
