Parent and carers of autistic children who are based in London or in the Midlands are invited to join our free workshop about Autism and Employment next week. You don’t need a diagnosis for your child in order to attend.

This workshop has been developed to help parent carers understand some of the challenges autistic people face when looking for employment opportunities.

You’ll hear more about social communication barriers, stigmas, and misconceptions. And you’ll also discover some tips and strategies to help you support your autistic child and young person on their journey to meaningful employment.

If you live in London

Our free workshop for London families takes place on Tuesday 27 June, between 2-3pm. This workshop has now taken place.

If you live in the Midlands

For families based in the Midlands you’re invited to join us on Thursday 29 June between 2-3pm. Book your free place.
