What is Autism Acceptance?

Later this month, we have a guest speaker to lead a discussion on autism acceptance at our drop-in Hub. Gill Loomes, an autistic academic based in Yorkshire, will be talking about what autism acceptance actually is and why it is preferred by some in the autism community to “awareness”.

Gill’s talk will then be followed by a discussion on acceptance and how it differs from awareness. The talk is open to anyone who lives in the Leeds area and is free to attend.

It takes place on Tuesday 24th April and starts at 5pm, finishing at around 6:30pm. It will take place at the Lovell Autism Hub, on the outskirts of Leeds City Centre.
