The Value and Importance of Family Activities
The value of trips is widely recognised as an effective means of extending and promoting personal and social development among our children as well as developing independence and giving families the opportunity to have a day out together. ACCT promotes and encourages the organisation of trips and outings for all our families, and it is hoped that parents/carers will also recognise the value and importance of these visits, and give their full support.

Cost of the Visit
ACCT believes wholeheartedly in the value of these experiences, and in the past has offered these trips with no charge in an attempt to ensure that these opportunities are accessible to all. However, offering a trip of this nature to a large group of members incurs considerable expense to the charity and consequently, a voluntary contribution of £1 per person is being requested towards the hire of the pool. This contribution is entirely voluntary. However, please note that without such voluntary contributions ACCT may be unable to offer this sort of opportunity in the future.
Payment can be made in cash, cheque made payable to Asperger’s Children and Carers Together or electronically using the Donate Now link on our website – The value and importance of family days out

Parent’s Meeting 1st July – Conversation Skills and Social Communication

Sasha Davies Speech Therapist will be presenting a talk at our next parent’s meeting on July 1st. Both she and Anna Westaway have developed a presentation aimed to outline issues children with high functioning ASD may encounter and ways in which parents and carers can work on developing conversation skills and social communication.

We hope many of you can attend and we can develop more specific focus areas in the future for our children. We would appreciate your feedback in developing this area.

Meetings are held once a month on Wednesday evenings from 7pm – 9pm at St.Mary’s Community Centre, Bramall Lane, Sheffield, S2 4QZ. Meetings are friendly and informal and a good opportunity to meet other parents.
