This project has excellent links with the Aspergers groups currently running in locations across Calderdale. There are two well established groups in Calderdale more information can be found http://welcome.calderdaleaspergers.com
The groups provide mutual, peer support to anyone with a diagnosis of an Autistic Spectrum Condition, awaiting diagnosis of an Autistic Spectrum Condition and parents and carers. The groups provide an open forum for people to share their experiences to provide support to others and a variety of topics and subjects are discussed. Speakers are invited along occasionally to provide information about services, events etc to members of the group and members are invited to share information and deliver presentations to the rest of the group
A support group for parents of young people with ASC aged 14-25 is run jointly with Calderdale NAS and Unique Ways. They meet on the last Thursday evening of each month from 730-9pm at the Orange Box in Halifax.
