Another busy 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’.
We started the week off with a post from Kieran: A Note About Our March PDSG’ which was all really looking forward to as it is a Q&A session with Dr Luke Beardon. It will be on the 10th March 2021. Please read the post for more information about how you can get involved.
We shared details of ‘The ACCEPT Study Survey’ which provides the opportunity to share your experience of any Autism training and / or gaps that you are aware of.
Some of you may also be interested in the ‘Warwick Female Sarcasm Research’ post which has a link to find out details about how you can get involved.
We posted ‘Autism and the double Empathy Problem’ which links to a paper on ‘The British Psychological Society’ website which discusses implications for the mental health of autistic people being misperceived by neurotypicals.
Here was an update from ‘The National Autistic Society: Important government Proposals to Change Mental Health Law’ which could result in fewer autistic people being wrongly sent to mental health hospitals.
Calvin and Ren streamed as usual this week. The game was ‘Ghost of Tsushima’ on Tuesday. They will be streaming again later at 7:30pm, and tonight the game will be ‘Hollow Knight’. Calvin thinks that these will the games to be streamed for the next 3 weeks.
