24th November 2018: ‘The Myths of Autism and my story’ - Calvin Glen
Teenagers and young adults with ASD are also invited along with parents to this session, if it is thought to be appropriate. Calvin has Asperger syndrome and has acted as a young speaker on behalf of Mind and has worked with young people. His discussions tend to be about school, peers and how he has coped, as well as dispelling myths about autism.
