An Open Day to make school-leavers with autism aware of adult support services available to them is being held on Friday, June 17, in the Autism Resource Centre, Maryhill.
The Transitions Open Day is aimed at school leavers within the Greater Glasgow Health Board area who have an Autistic Spectrum Disorder, their parents and carers. Representatives from the statutory, voluntary and private sectors will be available to give advice and information, together with displays and literature about their services.
Some will also give five minute talks on the services that they offer within the key categories of education, employment, community care, respite care and welfare benefits.
Service providers from specialist transitions projects and senior local authority staff will also be present.
The event is being held at the centre offices at The Quadrangle, 59 Ruchill Street, Maryhill, between 10 am and 2 pm.
