Autism train­ing session

Llanelli Star - - LETTERS -

LLANELLI MP Nia Grif­fith re­cently at­tended the Na­tional Autis­tic So­ci­ety’s first ever autism aware­ness train­ing session for MPs.

Ms Grif­fith was one of 82 MPs who at­tended one of the Un­der­stand­ing Autism ses­sions in or­der to learn more about autism and how to sup­port autis­tic con­stituents. The ses­sions were run by Na­tional Autis­tic So­ci­ety staff, some of whom are autis­tic.

Ms Grif­fith said: “The train­ing session was very in­for­ma­tive and cer­tainly gave me bet­ter in­sight into the chal­lenges that hav­ing autism can bring. I will be mind­ful of the ad­vice I re­ceived about in­ter­act­ing with and sup­port­ing autis­tic con­stituents.”
