Listen to the experiences of autistic adults to gain direct insights into your past, present and future, in partnership with PARC.
Just some of the topics covered this year include my life living with Asperger’s; “There’s nobody like me”: an autistic teacher’s insights into school life for female autistic students; pros and cons of autistic parenthood; how to be autistic and happy; The mental health survival guide: autistic edition; and senses and sensibility: findings from our Grand Sensory Survey.
The Hub: Theatre 1 has a seating capacity of 80 and sound is relayed to the audience through wireless headsets to reduce sound levels in the hall.
Places are offered on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive as early as possible before the session you wish to attend to save disappointment.
