A Warm Welcome To ASD Ashford.
We are a friendly parent led group which aims to support families in the Ashford area, with children and young adults on the Autistic Spectrum as well as those with ADHD. This includes those who have yet to gain an official diagnosis. Being told your child has or may have an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a lot to take in and we hope to help you along the path to better understanding.
Sam Williams set up the group in early 2011 after her first son was diagnosed, her second son was diagnosed in 2017. The overwhelming thing that did not change through all those years is just how alone you can feel as parent/carers, it has always been our mission to make sure parents know they are not alone.
There is a closed Facebook group for parents and carers, which is for local families to connect and is expanding every day and allows members to chat and share the highs and lows of life with a young person on the spectrum
ASD ASHFORD is completely independent and unfunded, the group runs on the fundraising efforts of its supporter's and donations form the local community.
We offer a range of Autism related training delivered by Austin Hughes from The West Ham Charitable Foundation, more info on this can be found in our training section. Currently we have no dates planned due to the Covid Pandemic but will as soon as we are able.
