Can diet treat/manage symptoms of autism?  Parents/carers can help with Research Project!
Research is being conducted at Sheffield Hallam University which is investigating parents’/caregivers’ beliefs and intentions to use gluten free casein free diets (GFCF) for the treatment/management of their child’s symptoms of autism. If you have a child aged 5-12 years who is on the autism spectrum you are invited to complete an online questionnaire only. Please complete whether you have never tried, have tried but no longer use, or are currently using a GFCF diet for your child. You are not asked to provide any identifiable information therefore all data will be anonymous. If you would like more information about this study and wish to take part please click on the link. This will take you to the online questionnaire.    https://shusls.eu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_88KDtzj00Pn9mgR

Aspergers Youth Club – All Welcome!
The Aspergers Youth Club (AYC) provides a safe, non-judgemental and fun environment for children and young people aged 8 years and over with Aspergers or High Functioning ASD in the Doncaster area.

The Club meets every Wednesday during term time at the Intake and Belle Vue Children’s Centre on Ardeen Road, Intake, Doncaster, DN2 5EU, between 5.30pm and 7.00pm.

There is a table tennis table, a Wii, a PS2, a small pool table, games, toys, arts and craft materials, Lego & K’nex etc. There is also a tuck shop, where you can buy a selection of crisps, chocolate bars, canned pop and other drinks, all very reasonably priced. Every month there is a cooking or baking session, and the Club holds sponsored events, goes out for meals, and has a yearly trip to the seaside.  There is even a separate sibling’s room, for those wishing to spend a little time apart from their ASD brother or sister.

Parents enjoy sharing a cuppa and a chat, and offer support and advice to each other.  It’s a great chance for children to make new friends, which opens up new opportunities for social development both in and away from the club.

Everyone is welcome to come along and join in.  Should you require any further information please e-mail Karena at aycforyou@gmail.com

The Club also has its very own Facebook page – copy and paste the following link into your browser – http://www.facebook.com/groups/442338792451277/
