Letterkenny Rugby Club appreciate all the support and to do this in association with and help raise awareness and funds for the Donegal Autism Working Group, for the month thats in it, is great for the club and for all involved.“Please come out and support our club, our teams and our charities on Saturday 9th.”The Autism Family Support Group was set up 9 years ago by a small group of parents who came together to provide support, encouragement and information for those whose lives are affected by ASD by sharing information and experiences.They all work on a voluntary basis and they have over 120 members. Parents often feel isolated when a child is diagnosed with Autism and this group offers an understanding environment and support both through social media and through monthly meetings where parents get together and discuss their difficulties and successes.LETTERKENNY RUGBY CLUB LAUNCH CHARITY ROW IN AID OF DONEGAL AUTISM WORKING GROUP was last modified: April 6th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:autismfamilyGroupLETTERKENNY RUGBY CLUBnewsSportsupportlast_img
