Staff, parents and carers at Flower Lane recently made a wonderful contribution to raising awareness about autism by organising several events and activities as part of World Autism Awareness Week.

One of the events included a ‘wear your favourite top’ afternoon. Many people with autistic traits find routine and regularity very comforting, so this was a very positive event for all.

Flower Lane staff and service users also pulled together their skills and made a round of very special cup-cakes – everyone enjoyed the outcome of this event no end!

Flower Lane is a specialist autism day centre and its staff are committed to raising awareness about the positive input that people living with autism (and those who support them) can make in the community.

Well done to all – no doubt the flock at Flower Lane have a roster of engaging summer events to look forward to.
