Statement from Centre Chief Executive Mr Gary Cooper OBE   I fully appreciate that in these challenging times parents and professionals will be looking for support in relation to the children and young people that they live and work with. At Middletown Centre for Autism I have been pleased by the approach the Centre staff have undertaken in relation to the development of a range of online resources and supports fully available wherever you may be. This newsletter highlights a major new move for the Centre with the introduction of webinars. These specialist sessions should be of great assistance in supporting autistic children and young people and their families during the current crisis. I have been hugely appreciative of those who have undertaken to support the Centre in the development of these new services. I have no doubt that you will find them of great value. Further details of how to access these sessions follows: In the meantime I wish everyone well, stay safe and your collective support is hugely appreciated.

Sometimes changes in routine can be difficult for our children. This is a calendar with visual supports can be used to show children that they will be ‘at home’ for the next few weeks or if children are asking about school the ‘no school’ symbols could be put on Monday-Friday. If we are given notice of a date to return to school the ‘school’ symbol could be put on to prepare children to transition back to school.
