Event description

Description

AuKids' advocate Tim Tuff talks about his own experience of autism, sensory difficulties and the world of work. Tim’s ability to see autism from an outsider’s viewpoint and his ability to put his experiences into words is rather special.

Tim, now 44, will talk about how he's learnt to overcome many challenges that are presented to him in daily life, including constant change, sensory overload and social communication difficulties.

Tim is well known in the autism community and proactively involved in developing the Adult Autism Strategy in this area.

During this informal event there will be opportunities to ask Tim questions.

'We had the most amazing morning yesterday having the company of Tim, and hearing him speak at our school.
At the end of the talk, so many parents were saying;' I feel like I understand my child better'. Tim's presentation was SO thoughtful. His articulation of his personal reflections on autism were inspirational'. - Natalie Mabbett.

Full directions will be sent to those attending. Refreshments provided.
