What can ChAPS do for me?
What can ChAPS do for me ?
We support families with Autism Spectrum Condition or Aspergers Syndrome, whether diagnosed or not, living in Cheshire.
Our ethos is working proactively and positively to achieve our aims, to improve autism awareness, increase independence skills and use early intervention techniques to improve outcomes for children.
For parents we produce a monthly newsletter that is sent out to all our members, with current news articles and reference material and has a diary of events detailing everything we are doing that month. This might include free tickets to events, positive parenting courses, social outings, discounts, the list goes on and on ...
We help by educating you about the possible difficulties your child may have at the moment or in the future, with advice, support, signposting and information.
We have an advocate who can help parents with many issues that they may experience when negotiating their way through the education, health and care systems to achieve the best for their children. This service is free to members. See Advocacy Service for more information.
ChAPS is a family, you are not alone, we are here to help. We have made such fabulous friendships with other families who understand that our children are incredibly gifted and our pride and joy.
If you would like to join ChAPS and have access to all the services we provide please use the 'Contact Us' page on here. We look forward to welcoming you and your family !
