Listen to the experiences of autistic adults to gain direct insights into your past, present and future, in partnership with PARC.
Just some of the topics covered this year include pros and cons of autistic parenthood; how to conquer your goals; surviving secondary school; getting a diagnosis aged 27; senses and sensibility: findings from our Grand Sensory Survey; and how I turned my autism into a career.
The Hub: Theatre 1 has a seating capacity of 80 and sound is relayed to the audience through wireless headsets to reduce sound levels in the hall.
Places are offered on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive as early as possible before the session you wish to attend to save disappointment.
