What’s happening in 2016 I hear?
An award from Awards for All will allow us to guarantee a project SCT has been determined to deliver. The voices of women with Autistic traits who have yet to achieve an assessment, will be SCT focus from April 1st, the launch event at 3MT in Afflecks on Oldham Street, M11JG
Wouldn’t it be grand if Susan Boyle could come and better still, be patron of the project which is a five year project. This is the first year.
Women of a certain age don’t always have computer skills which they need to research their RIGHTS! This is one of the first things SCT and its team will be helping with. ‘1:1 hasn’t gone’ is the Voices motto. 1:1 is what the members of this group need. Everything is online now. But it’s not much good to you if you can’t operate a computer for the purpose of communicating and discovering the plethora of information that’s out there.
Autism is a disability that’s here to stay. But it’s the mildest form, Asperger in older people that has gone unnoticed.The damming truth is: ‘they haven’t managed’ which is an assumption in society and a quote often read or heard.
9/10 women with Aspergers have allergies and digestive problems which can lead to life threatening conditions: for example, chronic pancreatitis can go unnoticed in those with allergies which create excessive mucous. This becomes a problem in the digestive mechanism. The Mcr Voices project leader has this problem. She had no idea the sinuses are part of the digestive system. Enough said. So you see, ‘they haven’t managed’ and this is just one example of the symptoms experienced by a mature Asperger female.
Come to the launch if you believe you’re one of these women. Contact Gina on 0161 834 4517 for more information.
We need support getting the message out there and we need to shout from the rooftops that the city centre has a social drop in facility for women with Asperger.
