Autism Awareness Day for Parents & Families

After the successful training days during National Autism Awareness Month in April, Fairway Training decided to put on another free training day for Parents & Families. The half-day course was aimed for parents and families of children who have had a diagnosis of ASD – Autistic Spectrum Disorder including Asperger’s Syndrome.

We were delighted to have a guest speaker Kevin Healey, Chairman of SAAS join Danny our Lead Trainer for the morning session. Kevin has been campaigning for autism rights for the last 10 years, he is one of twins, both of which have been diagnosed sufferers. In 2001, Kevin founded the North Staffordshire Asperger & Autism Association (NSAAA), then went on the found the Staffordshire Adults Autistic Society (SAAS) in May, 2007. SAAS recently won this year the Queens Award M.B.E for voluntary service. Kevin has campaigned to get better services and support for people with an autistic spectrum condition and he has won various awards over the last decade. Kevin is also a Councilor for the largest autism charity in the UK, the National Autistic Society.

We received some fantastic feedback from all our attendees and it was great to see parents exchanging their experiences and learning more about the condition. Kevin commented on the day’s training saying “Danny Page is a breath of fresh when it comes to AUTISM, dedicated, compassion, and most of all he knows about Autism inside/out, a remarkable trainer, keeps everyone’s attention. I have met many trainers but no one compares to Danny, his knowledge and in-depth sight to Autism is just amazing , 5* presentation and a great trainer that everyone needs to learn from”.
