The Sheffield Autism Research Lab are running a Distinguished Speaker in Autism series. This is a series of public lectures aimed to be of interest to a range of people from the autism community such as individuals with a diagnosis of ASC; parents; teachers; practitioners and also be an opportunity for those in the autism community to meet others from the South Yorkshire area.

The seminar will cover the challenges that people with autism experience during adulthood, including employment, further education, relationships and a range of sensory issues.

Attendance is free and open to all.
