Self Advocacy Group for Adults with Aspergers

Self Advocacy Group for Adults with Aspergers

Just Advocacy and the National Autistic Society have partnered to facilitate Self Advocacy Groups for adults who have all been diagnosed with either Asperger syndrome or High Functioning Autism. These groups currently run in 2 locations (Camberley and Reigate) in Surrey. During sessions the topic for discussion is decided by the group (the most popular topics tend to be to do with relationships and managing in difficult or awkward social situations) and everyone is encouraged to share their ideas, potential areas of difficulty and suggestions for coping strategies. The group also goes on regular outings that are decided upon collectively. These have so far taken place locally during normal session hours but the group is planning an outing for the summer that would take them further afield-some suggestions have been to go to London, the coast or a theme park. We do ask for a £1 contribution per session for refreshments and individuals need to fund themselves for outings.

Top ten lessons from the financial crisis
    23/01/2010

Three months into 2009 it seemed another annus horribilis was upon us; March saw the FTSE100 hit 3,500 (a 6 year low). Nine months on, however, the risk of financial Armageddon feels small, stock markets have bounced back and the UK has taken its first steps on the long road to recovery.

    19/12/2009

Imagine the scenario...

 

It's the 4th January and you're still smiling recalling the wonderful eleven days holiday you've just had. But as you turn on your computer and realise something is wrong, something is very wrong. The millions of twinkly lights going on across the South of England have caused a brief power cut which has corrupted your servers disc…and you've no back up.

Aaarrrggghhh!

Leading in difficult times
    18/12/2009

Well, another year is drawing to a close.  And quite a roller coaster it has been.  I attended an alumni event at Cranfield in October that helped me grasp the global economic issues and opened my eyes about the severity of the UK's situation.   I almost wrote a newsletter to share it at the time, but was concerned about how to do so ethically and sensibly.
