MAIN Charity, Middlesbrough, UK – work with people on the autism spectrum. This year the Northern Echo reports that they will be inviting a number of guest speakers to their World Autism Day event in Teesside.
Outreach worker Kelly Pounder said that the day is a huge event for the autism community, with parents, carers, professionals and people with autism all celebrating together.
“We’re really looking to recruit volunteers to help the organization grow.”
Speakers will include Dr Helen Pearce from the Adult Autism Service Teesside and Lynne Moxon, a clinical psychologist specialising in adults with autism.
Events manager Helen Jaques said:
“A common theme is finding someone who understands about the condition and can, by result, separate what is Autism and what is a general health issue.”
The event will take place on Wednesday, April 2, at the Southlands Centre, Ormesby Road, Middlesbrough.
Tickets cost £10 for unpaid workers and those on the autism spectrum in Teesside.
