Autism Awareness Day
For those of you who have read ‘Love, Secrets And Absolution’ and got to know Alfie who was born in the early seventies, you will have realized that in terms of diagnosis we have come a long way towards recognizing the early signs of children on the Autistic Spectrum. However, there is still a long way to go with respect to raising awareness.
This week, the first week in April 2019, people all over the UK will be marking Autism Awareness Week. The fundraising event set up by the National Autistic Society (NAS) aims to raise awareness of the condition and encourage people to donate to fund campaigns that help those with autism.
For my small part, I wrote a fictional account based on a young boy from a working-class family based in Nottinghamshire during the well-documented miner’s strike of 1983 in the United Kingdom.
If you are interested, the book published by ‘The Globeflower Agency’ is available as an E-Book and paperback from Amazon and other book outlets.
