REACH North West is a voluntary community group that supports autistic children and their families. We create individualised support packages to meet the whole families needs.
We help children to REACH their true potential by providing services that assist children to overcome communication difficulties and barriers to learning using a multi-disciplinary approach.
In addition we also provide practical advice, information, training and build partnerships with families, school and other professionals
This is Fraser (7) and Georgia (3) both diagnosed with autism .
Fraser was diagnosed at 2 and couldnt speak until 5 , he attends a sen school and has come on leaps.and bounds! We now cannot stop.him.talking , he loves space and Disney princesses . He is very bright but struggles with emotions and social interaction .
Georgia was diagnosed just a few months ago , her speech is delayed but is coming on wonderfully . Georgia can speak more than Fraser at her age and so isnt quite as frustrated , however Georgia has significantly more sensory issues around noise and organisation.
They both love routines and need structure which we have in our day to day life . Fraser never acknowledged Georgia until she was 7 months and we worried , but now at 7 and 3 they are inseparable and I cant tell you the joy that brings us
