World Autism Awareness Week…

With World Autism Awareness Week soon upon us, there is much planning going on behind the scenes at Apple House homes.

We really don’t need an excuse to eat cake but, if we did, there would be no greater and more worthwhile reason to do so than to raise money for WAAW.

Between 27th March – 2nd April 2017, The National Autistic Society (NAS) is asking people to raise money and awareness so that ‘as many people as possible learn about autism.’  They urge everyone to ‘bake, walk, quiz, collect…until everyone understands.’

Apple House homes are rising to the challenge, we’ll be posting here in the next few days to let you know how we are going to raise money and awareness for WAAW.  One thing’s for sure: it’s going to be a lot of fun!

What is autism?

The NAS define autism as ‘a lifelong, developmental disability that affects how a person communicates and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them.’

Often, alongside the communication and experiential effects of autism, can be additional challenges with which individuals with autism live.  These are extensive and diverse and certainly too comprehensive to list in this post.  For further information on living with autism, please click HERE
