Creatasmile - Smiles
Hi let me introduce myself.
My Name is Sharon and I am married to Edward. We have a 7 year old son - Benjamin with ASD.
Benjamin is our ray of sunshine and we are very proud of all that he has achieved.
I am the first to admit that ASD comes with a whole host of battles and struggles but we plod on and I wouldn't swap my boy for the world. He is in his words cheeky (not naughty) and definately has a sense of humour.
I grew up with Autism, watching my next door neighbour deal with her own battles with her Autistic son, who was indeed a character and very clever infact he passed his driving test at 17 which amazed my mother and father.
My neighbour (the mother) was an inspiration to everyone and we always thought that she was a very strong person, I now think that she was a brave person and often wonder how much she cried when alone.
Together with the help and support of Bill - Y Morfa Leisure Centre Chairman of the Board of Directors and Ady - Y Morfa Manager have set up Smiles to allow families to Smile and play with their children regardless of their problems.
We look forward to welcoming you all to our sessions and thank you for supporting Smiles.
