Autism Support Fair June 2018
In June 2018 Foxfield School hosted its first ever Autism Support Fair to bring together and promote the many different services available to support ASC on the Wirral. This included Autism Together, MENCAP, Shining Stars Sensory Services (Kas Lal), Therapy Dogs Nationwide, The Hive and Merseyside Autistic Children's Society (MACS). It was also an opportunity to share expertise and knowledge in workshops that were held throughout the day:
Kas Lal - Autism and Yoga,
Elliot Cox - PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance),
Eileen Slattery (Therapy Dogs Nationwide) - Pets as therapy,
Clare Johnson and Sherri Taylor-Sharp - Attachment issues,
Micah Grimshaw - Autism and girls
The Autism Fair was a great success and was well attended. This would not have been possible without the support of the many participants and by Foxfield staff who provided information about ASC at Foxfield and the work done in SCERTS classes as well as providing refreshments, and selling cakes and plants.
