Ashford Daisy Links
Sunday 17th February
We will be hosting another of our popular private Play Sessions at Imagine in Ashford between 5:30 & 7:30. These are a great opportunity for children of all abilities to enjoy the centre & for families to meet & chat to other families with disabled children.
These sessions are proving very popular, so to ensure that there is ample room for all to play as energetically as they like, but remain safe, we do need to limit the numbers we can accommodate. For this reason, we are currently only taking bookings for families from Ashford & the surrounding villages. If, as we get closer to the event, we have the ability to take bookings from those outside of this area, we will announce that here, so keep an eye on this page!
Please email email@example.com or call/text Maria on 07950 169691 to book a place
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 was Senior Behavioural Support and Training Officer for Anna Kennedy Online, before becoming Community Sports Manager for The West Ham Foundation. www.whufc.com/news/articles/2018/january/03-january/celebrating-another-fantastic-year-work-community
Austin has been delivering training with ASD Ashford over the last 4 years nd 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.
