What is World Autism Awareness Week?

World Autism Awareness Week begins on 26th March 2018 and culminates on World Autism Day on 2nd April 2018. The National Autistic Society is the leading UK charity for autistic people, including those with Asperger syndrome, and their families, so they run this awareness week each year to raise money and awareness to provide much needed support.

The National Autistic Society offer many suggestions for getting involved with this year’s World Autism Awareness Week, from joining an organised Night Walk to running, cycling or swimming 7k to show your support for the 700,000 people diagnosed with autism in the UK.

The money raised helps the charity to continue raising awareness of autism through campaigning, training professionals who work with autistic people and much more.

Sport Relief 2018: Whatever Moves You

A partner to Comic Relief, Sport Relief is a biennial fundraising event that encourages the British public to get active. This year, Sport Relief takes place over a whole week rather than just one day, between Saturday 17th March and Friday 23rd March, culminating in a live TV show on BBC One on 23rd March.

It’s a very fitting time to hold the event – just as this year’s PyeongChang Paralympic Winter Games close on 18th March, and in the same year as the FIFA World Cup.

Celebrities including Zoe Ball, Jonnie Peacock, Greg James are getting involved this year, taking part in a series of challenges to help raise vital funds for those in need in the UK and overseas.

Sport Relief is the perfect opportunity to bring communities and get active for a good cause. We are thrilled that these activities can be inclusive too by encouraging mass participation, as the official app converts steps for wheelchair users. Also, Sport Relief is known to raise money for disabled sports clubs across the country, such as the Ipswich Sports Club for the Disabled.

Today is #PlantAFlowerDay! 🌸

There’s nothing more spring-like than the blossoming of new flowers in the garden. Gardening is a therapeutic experience for everyone, citing many benefits for mental health, including children with additional needs.

Use Plant a Flower Day to get out in the garden (weather permitting!) and make a child-friendly area, perhaps a sand box, to get creative. If you can, go to your local park, nursery or garden store and take a look at the flowers and plants available, to inspire your own gardening choices.

Happy Pack Your Lunch Day!

Why not let your children get involved in the preparation of a healthy lunch, whether it’s for today or lunchtime at school?

Perhaps they can bake something for their lunch as a treat, like cookies, or choose their favourite snacks.

You could also celebrate by going shopping and choosing a new lunchbox together!

Did you know that March is Craft Month? More widely celebrated in the United States than the UK, this fun month still provides the perfect reminder to get crafting – and it is perfect for all ages!

When specially considered for your children’s needs, arts and crafts are fantastic opportunities for sensory play, by effectively engaging with all the senses and in turn helping children to develop and learn.
