Ridgeway Autism Families Team (RAFT)



The Ridgeway Autism families Team (RAFT) is a support group for anyone with a child in Ridgeway school who has autism - all relatives are welcome. The  group  meets about once each half term to discuss issues relating to children with autism, aiming to share experiences and approaches, and to offer emotional and practical support. From time to time speakers may be invited to address the group. The focus for discussions will be decided by the group, and all suggestions are welcome.


We have a Facebook page called 'RAFT - Ridgeway Autism Family Team Support Group' to help keep members informed. Our next meeting is:


Weds Feb 5th    Autism and communication issues

Weds March 4th    Autism and thinking skills

Weds April 29th    Autism and sensory issues

Weds June 17th   Autism and behavioral issues


 9.30am - 11am at Ridgeway School.



I hope you can join us for all or part of the meeting. There is no need to let us know in advance - turn up on the day, whenever you can manage it and we will be delighted to see you.
