Sparkle Sheffield is a local registered charity that supports children and young people from birth to 25 with Autism Spectrum Conditions and other social communication difficulties. Founded and run by parents who have autistic children, we understand what life is like and how we can work together to improve our children’s and our family’s life.

How can we learn to understand and support those living with autism?

More than one in 100 people are on the autism spectrum, meaning that there are around 700,000 autistic adults and children within the UK.  This lifelong developmental disability affects how people communicate and interact with the world. Understanding and supporting those living with autism is key in helping to respond to their needs.

Join Chimp Management on the 7th of March for a one-day specialised conference, focusing on how to support individuals and further understand how autism can present.

The day is hosted by Prof Steve Peters and consists of group work focused on simplified thought-provoking neuroscience with practical applications.

Net proceeds from this event will be donated to a local autism charity Sparkle Sheffield.
