Hello Everyone and hope you all OK.
Thanks go to Jo Garbett for a very interesting talk about the brokerage service at our last meeting and for some very interesting and relevant information about sensory issues from Sarah Harris and my apologies for getting her name wrong. I hope you found it as useful as I did.
At our next meeting on Friday 14th March at 10.30 am we will have Ann Wiseman from the Communication Interaction Team to talk about play in the early years. I hope you can make it along.
We are doing our best to get interesting and informative speakers for our meetings but if there is a subject you would like us to cover them please give me a ring and we will see if we can organise it. The number is at the bottom of the page.

The Plymouth Branch of the National Autistic Society run a daytime support group for Parents and Carers in association with the Communication Interaction Team (CIT). This is held once a month during term time and is open to all and led by a variety of speakers from CIT and other agencies. We hope to support and inform parents and carers of people with Autistic spectrum condition (ASC), and people with ASC.
We also run a group in the Evenings on the third Tuesday each month including holidays and this is a bit more informal providing an opportunity to have a chat and a coffee and just to chill out with others in a similar situation.
The Friday meeting starts at 10.30 until 12.30. We hope to see you either there or at our next evening group on the third Tuesday at 7.30 pm. Both meetings are at the usual venue at St Joseph’s Church in Devonport.
We are endeavouring to develop further services, and to work with others in Plymouth to highlight needs of people with ASC in Plymouth.
OUR MEETINGS ARE HELD AT ST JOSEPH’S CHURCH, RAGLAN ROAD, DEVONPORT, PLYMOUTH PL1A 4NQ.
