Durban autism school celebrates women

PARKHILL  school, Action in Autism (AIA) will honour autistic women and their mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts and caregivers during Women’s Month with a tea party fundraiser.

The Wild and Wacky Tea Party will be held at the AIA centre on Saturday, 24 August from 2pm to 4.30pm featuring music duo Sonny Skies, with Sibo Mensa on lead vocals and Sandile Ndokweni on guitar.

Inspired by their appreciation of Jazz, RnB and Soul, the duo is known for their catchy covers as well as their original compositions.

Along with the music, attendees will enjoy a high tea and relaxing mini manicures, pedicures and shoulder massages. Guests are invited to dress to express their most wonderful, wacky self and the best dressed will win a prize.

AIA is a non-profit organisation that provides support, learning and resources to autistic people, their caregivers and families.

Included in the services offered are a free, walk-in resource and support service, a free diagnostic clinic, regular support group meetings and functions, and an Early Intervention Centre for thirty-two children between the ages of two and six years.

Action in Autism does not receive any funding from government, and welcomes financial support as well as volunteers.

Tickets for the event are R150, and available from the AIA office.

The event is free to single mothers of autistic children, and the organisation is appealing to the public for sponsorship to cover the cost.
