It's Autism Awareness Week!

Autism Information and Advice are doing exciting things for Autism Awareness Week!

They are launching two competitions - one to redesign theirlogo and one to contribute to not only their training, but also the training delivered by Derbyshire County Council. The prize for the winners is a high-quality weighted blanket.

They are also launching a new free parent and carer course. This course has been co-produced with parents, carers, professionals and experts by experience. They wish to extend a special thank you to Swadlincote Asperger's Society as they contributed greatly to the production of this course. The course itself is an hour long and will be followed by an additional one hour of open Q&A with family therapist Felicity Rosslyn. 

This week they are also sharing a special locally produced logo with partners and wish to encourage everyone to use this logo during this week, as well as two hashtags #AutismAwarenessWeek and #AllTogetherForAutism
