Organiser of CASPA’s Got Talent
Children and young people with ASDs have a ‘hidden’ disability in that they may look like any other child of their age, but the defining features of Autism include a lack of social awareness, communication skills and social imagination. These characteristics are life long and pervasive which means they effect every area of a person’s life. Our children with Autism and social and communication difficulties are often disabled by the fact that mainstream society lacks the proper understanding of their needs or strengths. At CASPA, we believe that with appropriate intervention and sensitive support social skills can be taught and developed, neurodiversity should be celebrated and mainstream society can be educated to ensure proper integration of all those who have different ways of thinking, processing and viewing the world.
