Parent Support Group
Dawn Dunn, MD at Tree Tops started a Sensory Parent Support Group in October 2014. We are also affiliated with the Star Foundation in the USA.
The group meets every 6-8 weeks giving parents a chance to talk openly and privately about the children, swapping tips and strategies whilst enjoying light refreshments. We also organise events with our children and their siblings.
We sometimes have guest speakers and now have three Patrons:-
- Dawn Dunn DIP COT, Managing Director of Tree Tops Children’s Occupational Therapy – sensory based
- Professor Julian (Joe) Elliott, Principal Collingwood College, Durham University – education
- Rt Hon Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP Berwick upon Tweed – has a son diagnosed with ASD
If you would like more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have a private Facebook page that you can join and gather more tips/strategies to help your family.
You can also find out what's happening at the group by visiting the Parent Support Group News section of our site.
Do come along as the group are very friendly and will be more than happy to welcome you at one of our meetings or even via our Facebook.
