LICHFIELD LADIES DONATE TO LICHFIELD ASPERGERS PARENTS SUPPORT GROUP
Lichfield Ladies Circle recently made a donation of £500 towards the Lichfield Aspergers’ Parents Support group.
Asperger Syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and non-verbal communication, alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviour and interests.
Tracey Guest, a member of Lichfield Ladies Circle said “as a parent of a child with a diagnosis of Aspergers, I am delighted that Lichfield Ladies Circle is able to donate and support the work that this group offers. Aspergers can have such a huge impact on both the child and their families that their support, networking and information is invaluable.
Lichfield Aspergers Parents Support Group is a small voluntary organisation for parents/guardians of children or young adults who have, or may be diagnosed with,Aspergers Syndrome or Autistic Spectrum Condition in Lichfield and the surrounding areas of South East Staffordshire.
