|Calling All Parents And Carers Of Children With Speech, Language And Communication Needs|
| Help is at hand
Afasic is a parent-led charity that supports parents and carers of children and young people with speech, language and communication needs by giving them a voice at both local and national levels. Afasic can provide a supportive and vibrant community platform for shared reassurance, empowerment and guidance.
There is a wealth of information and resources available on the Afasic website www.afasic.org.uk where you can explore the issues surrounding SLCN as well as view the many opportunities to become involved in fundraising and other social activities.
An opportunity to take a further step to understanding and coping with the difficulties surrounding SLCN is on offer to those who would like to find out more about Afasic.
As part of their continued support for parents and careers Afasic are running Drop In ‘Get To Know You Sessions’ in England.
The aims of these Drop In sessions are:
Afasic Drop In and Volunteer Sessions
Afasic volunteers and staff will be on hand at the venue from 6pm until 7 and from 9am to 10 am. If you can’t attend the Open Drop In or the formal Volunteer Induction Session feel free to pop in between 6-7 pm and 9-10 am to pick up some literature and contact details.
Lesley said, ‘The Afasic Get To Know You Drop In’ sessions are a fantastic opportunity for parents and carers to share their background and understanding of SLCN with others. By sharing and supporting each other, in turn, they can help young people develop and grow as individuals. At Afasic, we want to help and empower parents and carers. So we ask everyone to, please, share this information with friends and family. We hope to see you at one of the ‘Get To Know You Sessions.’
