We are really excited to be bringing you four fantastic speakers, to officially open our newly re-located Autism Support Hub & Resource Library. The day promises to be an informative, insightful and enjoyable experience. We will be providing refreshments throughout the day, along with a buffet lunch. Please advise if you have any specific dietary requirements.

Please see information below about our speakers –

Laura James – Author of #OddGirlOut, columnist, journalist. EDS, POTS. Autistic. Laura was diagnosed as an adult and will be talking about late diagnosis, how being female meant she didn’t even consider that she may be autistic and how having diverse voices writing books about autism is hugely beneficial.

Jessie Hewitson – Author of ‘Autism: How to raise a happy autistic child’ and award-winning journalist at The Times. Jessie says that her book, Autism is the book she wishes she had read when her son was first given the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. Jessie will be talking about being a non-autistic parent, her feelings around diagnosis and the challenges of getting the right support for her child.
