AUTISM ADVICE & SUPPORT SERVICE
A not for profit charity run for children and adults with Autism and their families.
Support Group Worker
Lina coordinates the support groups for AASS consisting of the Arabic Support Group and the Carers Support Groups. Lina also provides ongoing support group coordination and facilitation to schools within the area. Through her role, Lina is able to provide families with the vital support and education they require.
Lina also provides support in our Early Years Therapy Playgroup offering families with a CALD background, whose access to services may be limited, the opportunity to be included and supported. Lina’s ability to interpret Arabic and French provides another dimension.
Her compassion and empathy in dealing with families and children with Autism is apparent when you meet her. Her own personal experiences having a child with a diagnosis of Autism plays a big role in her being able to assist, advise and support families.
