An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Friday, repeating until 29th May 2020
During the lockdown, Little Heroes ASD will deliver our weekly Friday support drop-in sessions in the comfort of your own homes via Zoom.
This gives parents and carers of children with autism the opportunity to chat with other likewise people who truly understand.
Everyone will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and say what has been going well and possibly what has no. If there is something they would like some advice on then this is the perfect time to state this. As everyone talks, they will say what they want to say and if they have suggestions for someone else, then this can also be done. After everyone has had an opportunity the microphones will be unmuted so discussions can take place. Please, we just ask for everyone to be courteous and give people a chance to talk.
We would like to think that this is a natural extension of our normal Friday sessions that happen at our support hub during normality. Friendships and networks can be built upon during the lockdown, avoiding social isolation.
An event page will be set up for each session on our Facebook page, helping to remind people of the day and time: we understand the current situation can almost make the days seem like groundhog day!
As this is a controlled event for our members and anyone in Southend who is a carer for someone on the autism spectrum, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org to request login details
