Here at The Garis Group, we enjoy supporting our community in any way possible. Even more so when it coincides with causes close to our client’s hearts.
One such cause is Autism Awareness. The Garis Group have had a long association with Steel City Financial Planners and the Finlay family who have partnered with the Hunter School for Children with Autism, supporting the cause through several charity events.
Those who are themselves, or whom have children on the spectrum, deserve to live full and beautiful lives just like any other. We can only hope our ongoing support helps to raise awareness, promote discussion and pave the way for improving the services and support that are essential for a better quality of life.
Access to appropriate education is one part of a wider approach to help. The Aspect Hunter School has provided specialised autism education for over 40 years across the Newcastle, Maitland, Lake Macquarie and Port Macquarie.
The Aspect Hunter School currently caters to over 160 students from 4 to 17 years. The Aspect Comprehensive Approach is used to provide individualised education programs that understand, engage and celebrate strengths, interests and aspirations of people on the autism spectrum.
The school holds information sessions each term for parents/carers and service providers to give details of the range of services provided by Aspect in the Hunter region. These services include; therapy, early intervention, school-based programs, educational outreach and training and support across home and community.
