Autism is a spectrum of lifelong neurodevelopmental conditions that often presents various challenges for autistic people and their families.
It is estimated that there are around 700,000 people in the UK with an autism diagnosis. Together with their families they make up around 2.8 million people, whose lives are touched by autism every single day. The experience of autism can bring positive opportunities, great inspiration, innovation and creativity.
The main aim of this event is to celebrate the achievements of those touched by autism. We want the Festival to be an opportunity for people to come together in order to celebrate the positive aspects of autism. We also hope to improve the understanding of autism amongst educational, health, medical and social care professionals through this event. It is our community and we care about everyone within it; everyone is different, unique and valued.
We are planning on various programmes throughout April 2017, which is known to be autism awareness month.
We hope to bring together various collaborative partners from across South Wales to participate in this festival of autism.
Everyone is invited and we hope you can join us for the festival.
Please Save The Date – 23rd April 2017.
