Professor Tony Attwood
Prof Tony Attwood is a World expert and leading authority on Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) and autism. Tony is an adjunct

The information night is for:
Teenagers with a parent or both parents on the autism spectrum.
The aim of the information evening is to assist teenage children of a parent with an Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) diagnosis or the personality characteristics of Asperger’s Syndrome to cope with the demands of being a neurotypical teenager living in a household with a parent, or both parents, on the spectrum. Whilst having a parent with AS brings its own unique rewards, there can also be challenges. The evening will provide a chance for the presenters and attendees to discuss specific questions, integrating knowledge and experience into practical strategies and advice.
Numbers are capped at 30 participants.
