Dear Subscriber,

 

Welcome to Axia-ASD's October
"Monthly Round-Up" Newsletter

October has been another wonderfully busy month for us All here at Axia! Carly’s husband Scott was welcomed “into the fold” as our new “Technical Supervisor”, Dr. Buchan spoke at the “North Wales 1st Annual Autism Conference” as Did David Reiser, and we were lucky enough to catch up with Dr. Luke Beardon prior to his presentation. We also received some very positive, constructive feedback both during and after Axia’s Post-Diagnostic Support Group this month. We have implemented Caroline's suggestion of putting the date for the next PDSG near the top of our website's sidebar on the right (for convenience).

Calvin was working double time for the Axia Film Society and headed off to London for the London Film Festival, Dream also ventured further afield attending the morning session of the 1st North Wales Annual Conference. Calvin gave his own presentation at our PDSG on what many of us perceive as a totally misguided concept (autism being an "illness" or "disease") and his research on a highly disturbing, suspicious, and in honesty sickening “Autism Cure”. Not to give a spoiler alert, but MMS is essentially bleach! The October Minutes contain his slide show.

Carly has been keeping us up to date with the News (as has Linda) and we’ve continued to receive “guest contributions” which have been most appreciated (including feedback from the PDSG from Helen, and Luke submitting his own gracious words he wished to share through our "Guest Submission Form").

We sincerely hope you enjoy this months offerings...
