It’s Summer Time!

This also means that Me Too! Is now 1 year old and what a year it has been! We have seen readership of the magazine grow to just under 30,000 in Aberdeen City and Shire and there are plans in place for the magazine to be moving into Dundee & Angus and well as Moray and Nairn before the end of this year. Since our last edition have won 2 awards and as I write, we have learnt that we have been nominated for a 3rd – thank you so much to everyone that has supported us so far.

Summer holidays can be a real challenge to fill when you are a parent/carer and perhaps more so when you have a child with an additional support need. I do hope you are able to find something to help fill those days in our diary pages and reading our “Parent To Parent” page for practical advice on where may (or may not) be suitable for your child. I am also delighted to announce we will be, in partnership with NAS and Riding High offering a Surf School on Thursday 28th and Friday 29th July in Aberdeen and you can see further details on the back cover.

We will also have our Me Too! Club running during the Summer Holidays – so even when it feels that everything else has stopped, you can still catch up with us for a cuppa and a play. It would be great to see you there…

I would like to thank John Williams for bringing his excellent show up to Aberdeen on World Autism Awareness Day. It was a fantastic evening and we were delighted with the funds raised on the night which can help us continue to do our work. Our next night will be a Pub Quiz with legendry pub quiz master, Mark McDonald on Friday 16th September at Aberdeen Sportsman Club – please do think about bringing along a team, it would be great to see you there!

Me Too! Is also delighted to be working alongside The Girl With The Curly Hair Project, and we are looking forward to the first of many training days that will be in Aberdeen City and Shire over the coming months. You can see more about their work and their trainer for Scotland in our interview section of the magazine.

It just leaves me to say that whatever your plans are for the Summer holidays this year, I hope they are successful, enjoyable and memorable…

Till Next Time…
