I have a 20 year old daughter who has Autism Spectrum Disorder. She has been a member of the Twinkle Stars Dance School for over 5 years.
Apart from the obvious advantages of exercise she thoroughly enjoys her dance class on Saturday mornings and she would be very upset if she had to miss them.
She has formed lasting friendships with many of the other members of this group and they often meet on other social occasions. I have also found the companionship and support of other parents to be invaluable.
We have travelled to perform in Disneyland in California and Dreamworld in Queensland which has been a very rewarding experience for all of us.
I can honesty say that her participation in this group has become a very special part of our lives.
