‘Autism Show’ to raise awareness in Kirklees.

The first ever Kirklees Autism Show is being launched by the Council this month in a campaign to improve understanding of the condition.

A new webpage is also being created by Kirklees Council, which will contain support information and a film addressing prejudice towards people with Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC).

The event will take place at Huddersfield Town Hall on Tuesday October 29 from 2pm.

We hope this event will improve understanding of this hidden condition to ensure that the one in 100 people in Kirklees who live with it are able to reach their full potential.

– Cllr Molly Walton, Kirklees Council.

There will be an opportunity to speak to professionals to find out more about things that are important to people with Autism Spectrum Condition, such as employment, transition,housing, leisure activities, diagnosis, benefits and much more.

– Gary Wainwright, Kirklees Council
