Autism: Talk by Vivien Dawes
Tuesday 14th November @ 8:15 pm to 10:00 pm
Tuesday evening we have a special presentation on a subject many of us are affected by but know very little about: Autism. Viv Dawes is an Autism Advocate and clearly an expert in her field – you can see a range of her publications and activities on her website here. From her introduction:
I am Viv Dawes, a late-identified and diagnosed autistic lived experience advocate, writer and trainer. I am also the parent of a ND teenager. I have over 25 years’ experience of working with vulnerable young people and adults, including neurodivergent people. I have many years’ experience in delivering training, online and face to face workshops, management of programmes and have vast experience and understanding of how to work with vulnerable young people and adults.
She’s also the sister of our member Teresa, and as such comes well recommended to us!
Teresa’s words from last week’s email:
Just wanted to encourage you all to please be present for my sister’s talk next week. I think many of you will be able to relate to the presentation and also to become better informed about neurodiversity and autism.
Come along for what should be an evening of enlightenment for us all.
