The Hub: Theatre 1

Listen to the experiences of autistic adults to gain direct insights into your past, present and future, in partnership with PARC.

Michael Barton

Just some of the topics covered this year include Keeping Your Autistic Self Safe Online; Autism and ‘Challenging Behaviour’: Who is Challenging Who?; How We Got Through Those Difficult Years; and Supporting Autistic Children and Young People with Transitions.

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.
