In June 2012, Andrew and Jade’s eldest son Callum, was diagnosed with Autisic Disorder at the age of 3.
Having spent the previous two years struggling to understand Callum’s challenging behaviour, this diagnosis provided many answers, and something of a ‘map’ to help Andrew and Jade guide Callum.
Through the ongoing search for information and services to help Callum, Andrew and Jade discovered NSW organisation Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect).
Aspect offer a range of services to individuals with spectrum disorders, and their families and carers. They also run a network of specialised Autism Schools. We are so incredibly lucky to have one here in the northern Wollongong suburb of Corrimal, called Aspect South Coast School.
We aim to continue to raise awareness in the community around spectrum disorders. We would be so grateful if you could take an opportunity to look through Aspect’s website whenever you have some spare time.
In the event that you are looking to support a worthy cause in our community, please keep Aspect South Coast School in your thoughts. They employ some of the most incredible teachers, therapists and staff. Their patience, and their passion for their little students is second to none. They need our ongoing support, and you can be sure that 100% of donations made to the school, are used by the school for our gorgeous little Wollongong children.
