 Borders Asperger & Autism Group Support, Scotland

Borders Asperger & Autism Group Support

Borders Asperger & Autism Group Support

B.A.A.G.S. offers support, advice and friendship to parents, relatives, friends and anyone with an interest in Asperger syndrome, autism or related behaviour. It is a group run by volunteer parents and people who work with autistic children. The aim of BAAGS is to make people aware of the condition and the effects it has on everyone, the teachers, the families the neighbours etc. It is important for the person with autism to be allowed the opportunity to have the correct care and attention individually planned around them.

The aims of the Group are to;
· Offer support, encouragement and hope.
· Raise awareness of the behaviours of autism.
· Raise awareness of the stress suffered by lack of knowledge.
· Offer members and their families a social life.
· Give the opportunity for “everyone” to live a “normal” life.

Members are encouraged to talk about their experiences, to share their views, their concerns and their angers. They are often surprised to learn that they aren’t alone, that they will survive, and that they are experiencing the same frustrations and loneliness that others have felt, or are still feeling.

We need people to accept that Asperger syndrome and autism exist, that people with the condition live amongst us, are related to us, and they and their families need support, they deserve support, they deserve to enjoy their life. Anything anyone can do to help them enjoy their life should be done.
Please help and support our Group.
