Autism Acceptance Week
This year, World Autism Acceptance Week is from 28 March to 3 April.
We have an exciting series of events for children and their families, and professionals at four local libraries. We have also secured a number of places for the National Autistic Societies Autism in Girls Training.
Because it’s the 60 Anniversary of the campaign, we are challenging 60 parent carers and professionals to sign up for the training during the campaign week.
Library pop-up events
All the events are from 9:30-11:30am
- Cleethorpes Library. Monday 28 March
- Waltham Library. Tuesday 29 March
- Grimsby Library. Wednesday 30 March
- Immingham Library. Thursday 31 March
You can sign up to Lincs Inspire at the event or online. Children & Young People (lincsinspire.com).
The highlight of the events is a whole suite of books about Autism Spectrum Disorder.
There are books for children and young people with SEND, their brothers, sisters and friends, and parent carers. There are also books for professionals and books on other neurodiverse needs.
At the event you will also be able to meet our friendly team and give us your feedback about your experience of our local SEND offer. We always love to have a chat with parent carers and children and young people because we get lots of new ideas about what we can offer.
