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
Hi my name is Corey and I’m 12. I have a diagnosis of ASD, ADHD and Dyspraxia. My mum is helping me to write this. I’ve only had my diagnosis in the last 2 years but I’ve always felt different from other children. Having autism makes me sad and sometimes people don’t understand me.
I go to a special school in Lancaster, I don’t really like it and don’t think I should be in a special school but teachers and other people say I do. I struggle to make friends which makes me sad. I want friends to play out with and play Xbox one with. I hope I make friends soon.
I love going to the beach with my mum and sister and my favourite place is primrose valley near Scarborough. It makes me happy when we go , I wish we could live there. We go crabbing and we have lots of fun.
I love Man City and like to go to the matches with my mum , I hope we can do that again soon. I love my mum she is my best friend and I love my dog Magnus and my family.
