Another busy, but shorter, week here at Axia with our clinicians carrying out excellent work.
Just a reminder to those of you who are due to visit us for face to face appointments, all staff and visitors are required to wear masks in the communal areas of the building, unless exempt. We are still observing the Social Distancing rule of 2 metres and have hand sanitiser available in all of our clinic rooms and offices, in addition to those positioned around the building. Visitors are reminded to keep themselves and others safe by using the hand sanitiser provided before entering and leaving the building. Our clinic rooms allow the space for Social Distancing of 2 metres so families and individuals can remove their masks, if wearing, once inside the room should they feel more comfortable in doing so. There is now also a separate entrance and exit to the building to avoid congestion at the front door.
If you have a virtual appointment with us, please see the post: ‘Advice for those Attending Virtual Appointments’.
Important information for anyone booking an appointment with us from today: ‘Changes to Payment for our Services.’ Following feedback from individuals and families who have accessed our services in the past, we have made the decision to change our payment process. This means that payment for all appointments will be made in full before bookings. We hope that this will make things easier going forward. Please read the post for further details.
This week is ‘World Autism Awareness Week: 29th March – 4th April 2021’. You can find out about how to get involved by visiting the ‘National Autistic Society’ website. It would be lovely to hear from anyone who is taking up a ‘Super 7 Challenge’. I completed my challenge last night: 7km on my spin bike, a 70 second plank and 7 sets of squats with 7kg weights. Many thanks to everyone who has sponsored me!
We shared an article from ‘Metro.co.uk: You’re too pretty to be autistic: Why so many women are going undiagnosed’ which highlights the experience of one woman’s childhood. Unfortunately, we know that this is not an isolated experience but hope that thigs are starting to and will continue to change.
A really exciting update from the ‘National Autistic Society’ alerting people that applications are open for a fantastic training opportunity: ‘Postgraduate certificate in Autism and Asperger at Sheffield Hallam University.’ This course is led by none other than the amazing Dr Luke Beardon. Read the post to find out more about the course.
Calvin was back with a post for ‘The Film Society’ this week where he gave us ‘4 Reasons why Young Sherlock Holmes does not deserve to be forgotten.’
Calvin and Ren streamed as usual on Tuesday and the game was ‘Ghost of Tsushima’. If you missed it and would like to watch, use this link:
