The format will be similar to the usual formats in as much as I will be doing a presentation on sensory sensitivities. We will have the break with cakes and this time refreshments are going to be provided by the Lifestyle Centre (there has been a change in policy regarding this). We hope this will work out well.
After the break there will be a number of things we will be discussing including the BAFTA hosted Autism Uncut awards which were awards for journalists, film makers and others involved in raising Autism awareness in the various genres.
Calvin and Renwick (Calvin’s new associate member of the film society) attended the BAFTA hosted awards and made contact with a number of the winners, in particular, they made contact with Agony Autie who won two awards: The People’s Choice and a media award. They discovered that she is based in Chester and therefore extended an invitation for her to attend our post-diagnostic support group as we felt this would become a useful link for the group in the work that we are co-producing.
I am delighted that she has accepted the invitation and we hope there will be an opportunity, not only to congratulate her but also to hear about her success.
