My story

[p]🧗🏼🏔 A challenging undertaking that is not without risk for anyone let alone a child of Primary School age. Reflecting the many difficult & repeated steps for children with bright, unique minds “Neurodiversity” often labeled SEN or specific learning differences with names like [b]Dyslexia/ dyscalculia/ dyspraxia/ anxiety/ADHD/ Aspergers/social difficulties[/b], every day and especially at school. [/p][p]Aston has decided to act, to support learners who are unable to access appropriate support services & to acknowledge the life changing support which can be provided by Helen Arkell dyslexia charity in assessment, training of students & the support of teachers in school & 1:1, within their local communities and beyond.[/p][p]Aston has been inspired by the leadership of his climbing coaches especially - Jack Oliver, Mike Jones and Jon R.[/p][p]With funding cuts as they are, and qualified support teachers in short supply, and understanding of the needs of those with neurodiversity in need of improvement, any amount you felt able to contribute would mean the world to Aston, Jack, all at Helen Arkell & those who will finally benefit from the support the team will then be able to provide.[/p][p]Aston would welcome any messages of encouragement and support to keep the motivation he needs going on the 3 day climb. Thank you.[/p][p][url=https://www.helenarkell.org.uk/]https://www.helenarkell.org.uk/[/url][/p][p][url=https://www.mountainadventurelakedistrict.co.uk/about-us/]https://www.mountainadventurelakedistrict.co.uk/about-us/[/url][/p][p][url=https://eur02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fsummitmountainskills.com%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7C91de77d8a77f4d675d3a08d6b1cce61e%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636891890920900676&sdata=svAhpIHHQzOCBn6Gz%2BcUMuAIAKo4LHHy9zEaHdM4RIk%3D&reserved=0]https://summitmountainskills.com/[/url][/p][p][img]//:0[/img][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
