There will also be the opportunity to book on our autism & anxiety one to one advice and guidance sessions for parents/carers. Autism West Midlands staff can help parent/carers to understand the reasons behind their child’s anxiety and advise on strategies and resources to help.
At the show, you can pick and choose from over 100 hours of talks, clinics and workshops, plus hundreds of specialist products and services. Once inside the event, all content is free to access and CPD certified for professionals.
