Raising awareness during World Autism Acceptance Week

Did you know that around 1 in 100 people in the UK are diagnosed with Autism? Did you also know there are many services in East Sussex that help to make our county friendlier to people who are on the autistic spectrum?

One of those services is Spectrum, which helps young people with autism to access clubs and leisure activities.

World Autism Acceptance Week, which finishes on 2 April, raises awareness of Autism, which can make it difficult for people in these areas:

  • Social communication.
  • Social interaction, including reading emotions and facial expressions
  • Social imagination

East Sussex Local Offer gives more information on autism. If you think you, or someone you know, has autism you can find out how to get diagnosed on the NHS website
