About the group

The RCT Asperger Parent Support Group was formed in 1997 by a group of parents who met when their children attended speech therapy together. They decided to meet regularly to encourage the children to socialize and also to support each other. 

 

The group has became more established as more families with children with Asperger Syndrome need support, and it continues to grow from strength to strength up to the present day. 

 

Initially the group relied on fundraising and donations to fund outings for the children, but during the past 5 years we have been successful in securing funding from numerous sources which has given us the opportunity to provide free of charge:

 

 

 

Training workshops for parents

Horse riding

Dance and Drama Classes

Basket Ball with The Rhondda Rebels

Karate Classes

Sports activities

Craft workshops

Family fun days

Cinema Trips 

Outdoor Pursuits

First Aid Classes

Music Workshops
Chocolate Making workshops
Bushcraft sessions

 

The group’s future aim is to secure more funding, and provide more exciting and challenging events for the children and their families. We also aim to raise awareness of Asperger Syndrome by attending meetings to highlight issues relevant to living with the condition, and provide support and information for children and their families.

 

 

The group have an extensive range of books which are available for loan. (listed below) If you would like to borrow a book, then please e mail us by the 3rd Sunday of the month,so that books can be exchanged at our monthly meeting (3rd Monday of the month). rctaspergergroup@yahoo.co.uk
