Day nine On the ninth day of Christmas your giving could help a child like Faye’s achieve their goals. Lots of big statements can be said about children when they receive a diagnosis of autism. For Faye, she was told her daughter Brooke would never be able to talk, read or even learn. But since starting school with the North East Autism Society Brooke has not only smashed through the ceilings experts said she would have in her life, she’s now a more contented, happy child – that keeps everyone on their toes. Mum Faye, said: “There was a time a time when we did wonder what the future would be like for Brooke, and we were apprehensive. Now we have hope and we’re excited for what she will go on to accomplish.” Our teachers, support staff and education experts never put a full stop after a child. Instead, with a dedicated approach our children and young people really do learn, achieve, experience and enjoy all that education can offer in order they reach – and even exceed - their goals. Your giving this Christmas could help children like Brooke have the future once thought impossible.
