Autism 05

Felicity Amswych, Chair of the Aylesbury Vale branch of the National Autistic Society, will be giving a talk on Thursday 14th September at Haddenham Medical Centre 10.30am-12.30pm.

The talk will explore the way autism affects individuals, both from the speaker's own perspective and from the knowledge she has gained through her work with the National Autistic Society, as well as through her involvement in the diagnostic services run by Buckinghamshire County Council.

The spectrum of disorders falling under the umbrella of 'autism' is broad.

Felicity will seek to throw light on this complex subject, answering questions from patients and offering information about the services provided in Buckinghamshire.

Tea and Coffee will be available.

The website of the National Autistic Society can be found here.
