Autism  Awareness  Talk

Traditional Chinese culture has a distorted interpretation of autism, meaning that many families are not able to face up the difficulties faced by children and give the child the help they need. With the advancement of research, autism has proven to be not a disease. Autism is very widespread, the child can have high IQ or particularly sensitive sensory organs which can lead to outburst in some social situation. We wish to raise the awareness of autism, and to further understand the different development of autistic children, so that the Chinese community can eliminate prejudice and open our heart to embrace each others’ differences, which will benefit all children within our community!

Date: Monday, 20 March 2017
Time:
11:00 am—1:00pm
Venue:
Chinese Community Centre

Light lunch provided, places are limited and members have priority! Please call the centre to register:  01792-469919
