Erin, who is supported by our Family and Specialist Support team, has performed a poem to music, to express her experience of being autistic and how support from the Aspens' team has changed her life.

Erin, 16, from West Sussex, wrote the words and composed the music herself.

Erin and her family have received support from Aspens over the past 18 months. 

Erin wrote the poem and the song to support our Au-Some 10 for 10 Challenge campaign and appeal for Autism Acceptance Week (26 March - 3 April). Talented Erin also designed two of the logos for the campaign. A huge thank you to Erin for supporting our campaign and for allowing us to share her very moving performance. 

Our Au-Some 10 for 10 Challenge is raising funds to help the Family Support team expand their service to reach more families like Erin's, delivering much-needed support such as one-to-one sessions, support groups and a live chatline. 

We are asking people to take on the challenge by being sponsored to do 10 of any activity of their choice throughout the week, or to donate to the campaign appeal page.
