Specialist care provider highlights Autism Awareness Day
Craegmoor is marking World Autism Day with two unique and totally different perspectives of the condition.
Sue Hatton, autism advisor at Craegmoor, will speak about her amazing experiences delivering autism training in rural Ghana. Sue has visited Ghana three times to work in a unique community called Hand in Hand which cares for abandoned children and adults with autism. Last year Craegmoor supported her to deliver a range of training sessions to the local care givers.
Gavin lives at a Craegmoor specialist service in Somerset. He has Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) and regularly attends a discussion group for individuals with AS and autism, which helps them understand themselves better. Gavin will talk to the guests about living with AS and how he is able to cope more easily with his anxieties thanks to the support of the group.
Interview opportunities may be available with Sue or Gavin. Please contact Caroline Walker on 01325 383886.
