Do you or someone you know have a child or young adult with Asperger’s Syndrome? Do you often feel that no one understands what it’s like trying to live through every day with Asperger’s at home, at school, and in the community?
Asperger’s Syndrome is also known as ‘High Functioning Autism’. Without support, understanding and practical help, High Functioning Autism inevitably becomes dysfunctioning or misfunctioning autism: heavily and negatively impacting your child, your extended families and of course you, the parents. Parents Talking Asperger’s is a voluntary support group in north Oxfordshire (near Banbury) for parents and siblings of children/young people with Asperger’s Syndrome – either diagnosed or undiagnosed.
We hold a PTA Fun Night and Parents’ Forum every other week on a Thursday where we meet for food, fun and friendship. Activities include Wii, iPads, computer games, table tennis, table soccer, air hockey and sensory room chill-
Our speaker event programme – where we invite Autism experts and others who have something positive to contribute on living with Asperger’s – is planned to take place three times a year.
