Axia Weekly Bulletin – 11th December

Another busy week here at Axia with our clinicians carrying out excellent work.

We would like to remind everyone who has upcoming appointments with us that we are still able to conduct face to face assessments.

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.

As you may be aware, today is ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ which is an event to raise money for ‘Save the Children’. Many thanks to Alex for arranging the Axia team’s involvement with the event again this year and to everyone for wearing some excellent jumpers!

This week saw the first ever ‘virtual’ interactive PDSG take place. It was a great success and I am glad that those of you who joined were able to do so without any technical issues. Thanks again to all of the team who worked so hard to make this happen and we look forward to offering more virtual PDSGs in the New Year.     

This week we shared information about a consultation: ‘Welsh Government seek views on the draft Code of Practice and supporting guidance for Autism services’. I hope that many of you will share your views as part of the process.

Calvin posted reviews again this week, sharing his thoughts on the game ‘Demon’s Soul’s 2020’ and also for ‘The Film Society’ a discussion about ‘Why a Christmas Carol (1999) is my favourite’, getting us all in the festive spirit.

Our last Weekly Update of 2020 will be next week, Friday, 18th December 2020. Axia will close for our Christmas shut down on Wednesday 23rd December 2020 and will reopen on Monday 4th January 2021.

Please be aware that the Admin Team will be unavailable on the afternoon on Friday 18th December 2020 from 12pm – 4:45pm as they will be taking part in a mandatory training event. During this time telephone and email enquiries will not be answered, however, please be assured that the team will begin responding to all messages and emails from 9am on Monday 21st December 2020.

Calvin and Ren streamed as usual this week. The game was ‘The Last of Us Part 2’ on Tuesday. They will be streaming again later at 7:30pm, and tonight the game will be ‘Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition’.

I wish you all a lovely weekend.
Sue Power
Company Secretary and Educational Lead

    I am very thankful to all the Axia Team for organising the virtual PDSG.
    To re-connect and to hear plans for the future, was very reassuring.
    I will really look forward to future ones.
    Many thanks.

    I enjoyed hearing Calvins talk, and the friendly banter from the Amigos – it felt like old times!

    Congratulations to the entire team! I’m definitely looking to more virtual PDSGs. Although I sure many of you would also enjoy the return of F2F PDSGs, it could be that future F2F sessions might also have a virtual capability. I was feeling a bit subdued myself, due to a few personal concerns. But I’m sure I will be a bit more interactive in future.

    Happy Christmas & New Year to everyone in the AXIA-ASD universe! 🙂

    Thanks Helen and Senor.
    I am really glad that the PDSG went to plan and that you enjoyed it.
    We are planning to offer a ‘hybrid’ model of PDSG in the future (when we can meet face to face again) by still making it possible for people to join virtually.
    Happy Christmas!

    Way to go! 🙂

    Good move! That might also allow you to occasionally also have guest presenters from further afield.
