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.

She adds:

“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.
