News from Dogs for Good - www.dogsforgood.org

 

In partnership with The National Autistic Society and the University of Lincoln, Dogs for Good completed a three year research project investigating why dogs affect children with autism and the impact on the family as a whole. The research found that owning a pet dog reduced stress in parents of children with autism.

 

Family Dog workshop places available

 

Our workshops are designed to provide parents of children with autism with the advice and long-term support needed for choosing and training a dog to benefit the whole family.

 

Workshops are held around the country and use a combination of practical demonstrations with our workshop dogs, discussions, hands on learning and course handouts.

The show Disney's 'The Lion King' will be touring to the Bristol Hippodrome and we are hosting a 'Relaxed Performance' on Tuesday 19th November at 5pm.  

 

While all guests are welcome to any performance, the Relaxed Performance may be something that people with autism and their friends/families/carers would like to be aware of. For anyone who would like more information about the Relaxed Performance, as well as the opportunity to book: click here

The Curly Hair Project is a national organisation that supports autistic people and those around them.  We have a brand new training day all about Autism in Adulthood which will be running for the first time in Bristol.

 

Our Autism in Adulthood day is on Sat Nov 23rd in Bristol, at Stoke Gifford Retirement Village, near UWE. Close to bus routes from the City Centre.  

 

This day will cover:

  • The Autism Act - what is it, what does it mean, why does it matter for you in work and education?

  • Being an Autistic Parent - understanding what the challenges may be, what the positives are and strategies to help

  • Autism in the Workplace - a chance to see our new video “a day at work for the girl with the curly hair” we will also discuss strategies to manage working life

 

This session is suitable for adults, young adults, parents and professionals.  No diagnosis is necessary.  Not just for girls.  You can book for one session or the whole day.

 

I aim for the event to be autism friendly - no buzz groups, no introductions, no need to interact unless you wish to.

South Glos Integra Team

 

With autism being a burgeoning need in South Glos, Bristol and indeed all over the UK, we are organising our first autism conference to specifically support parents and carers on 7th November. There is very little help and information for parents pre and post diagnosis, so the content of the day has been tailored around issues that parents tell us they are concerned about. The conference also welcomes professionals.

 

Attached is the full flyer with all the information that you need to know.

Carers Rights Day 2019, organised by Bristol and South Gloucestershire's Careres Support Centre, is back this year! It is on November 21st, 10am-1pm at The Vassall Centre.
