If you would like to book Alex to come and deliver this talk to your organisation please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also looking at arranging a conference on co-existing conditions in 2017 which we will keep you updated on.
Alex is booked to speak in Mold on the 7th June at the Parkfields Community Centre at 7 p.m. He will be delivering a brand new talk on Autism and obsessions. Alex plans to speak about the positive role of special interests and also about the times when repetitive thoughts can be negative because it is hard to stop them. Alex is excited to deliver this talk.
