Child A

I am a 5-year-old girl with high functioning ASD. I am very social, but I have no filter. You would need to be thick skinned. I am active and enjoy gymnastics, swimming and bowling. I can find it difficult to leave places. Female PA needed due to some help with toileting. You will be accompanying me when out and about and ensuring my safety is priority at all times.

Child C

I am a 17 year old girl with Autism. My school has mentioned me attending a transgender support group in Cathays on a Tuesday evening. You would not need to come in, but wait in the car while I attend. Unfortunately, I have no one to take me to this group at the moment.
