Great Day Out to The Autism Show

Parents and carers had a great day out to The Autism Show in London on Saturday 13 June, supported by a grant from The Big Lottery. The coach left Reading at 8am and we returned around 6pm, having spent 6 hours listening to speakers, talking to exhibitors and gathering lots of information. We hope to have another trip next year.
