Subsidised Speech & Language / Occupational Therapies
Occupational therapy can help to improve daily living skills, such as toilet training, dressing, brushing teeth, and other grooming skills; fine motor skills required for holding objects while handwriting or cutting with scissors; gross motor skills used for walking or riding a bike, sitting, posture, or perceptual skills, such as telling the differences between colours, shapes and sizes; visual skills for reading and writing. Speech therapy can improve overall communication. This makes it possible for children with autism to improve their ability to form relationships and function in day-to-day life
Subsidised Play Therapy
Play Therapy is a method of working with children who need help in dealing with their emotional and behavioural issues. Play Therapy provides them with the opportunity to “play out” their thought, feelings and problems in a non-directive way, in a safe environment with a caring therapist.
Support Group Meetings
Support group meetings are one of the most invaluable services that we provide, bringing parents of newly diagnosed Snowflakes together
with parents who are a little further along the journey, in order for them to share experiences and swap stories. They are usually a parent’s first introduction to Snowflakes and parents usually leave their first Snowflakes support group meeting feeling hopeful and positive.
Come join us for a cuppa and a chat with other autism parents! Free event and kids welcome to come along.
Parent and Baby/Toddler Morning
Come along to our parent and baby/toddler morning, siblings are welcome. Use the time for a chat and a coffee while the kids enjoy some play time. All are welcome and Anne will be your volunteer on the day.
