Autism award nominations open

Carol Povey, director, National Autistic Society’s Centre for Autism, writes:

The National Autistic Society is looking for people and organisations who’ve done something amazing for autistic children, adults, or their

families.

Perhaps it’s a teacher who

has helped a child achieve something great, an autistic adult who has been campaigning tirelessly or a business that

has put a lot of effort into

making their workplace accessible.

If any of your readers know of a person or organisation like this, please nominate them for our seventh annual Autism Professionals Awards.

We want to celebrate their achievements, so we can improve understanding of autism and inspire other people and organisations to make a difference too.

The nominations close on Friday, October 26, 2018.
