Optimism in Autism
Alex Evans from Optimism in Autism will be doing a talk for parents and secondary aged children on Wednesday 18th January 3.30-5pm at Thameside Primary School, in Abingdon. Entrance is free.
Alex will be talking about his life with Asperger’s and how a late diagnosis changed his life. The talk will not be specifically aimed at children or families with a diagnosis of Asperger’s and may be of interest to those who have some similar traits or characteristics. The event is not about diagnosing any children with ASC, but raising awareness of communication and interaction needs and how to support them. Similar techniques can be used for children who have no diagnosis and have communication and interaction needs. Alex will share ideas and techniques that helped and did not help him. For further information about Alex please visit his website www.optimisminautism.co.uk

Footsteps Child Pedestrian Road Safety
Footsteps is Oxfordshire County Council’s child pedestrian road safety scheme. The aim of Footsteps is for children to learn to take responsibility and make decisions under the supervision of an adult. Footsteps enables parents to gradually teach their child according to age and ability until each child is able to become independent. Parents are encouraged to ask lots of open questions and discuss road safety skills which they may not have thought about. Below is a link to the Parents' Guide leaflet to help you support your child with road safety.
