Alex Lowery was diagnosed with autism when he was four years of age. As he got older he found that the diagnosis of autism didn’t really explain all his difficulties. Just over a year ago Alex received an additional diagnosis of ADHD and Dyspraxia along with a suggestion that he may have Tourettes. Alex found that the additional diagnosis has helped him to understand himself better and has reduced his anxiety. Alex feels that it is important for parents and professionals to understand how these different conditions may affect an individual. With this in mind he is hoping to run a number of workshops on this topic. This first workshop is due to run on the 25th July in Craig-y-Don Community Centre from 12.30 until 4 p.m. The first workshop will be at an introductory rate of cost £10 per attendee which will include refreshments. We are also planning on running a conference on the 4th July 2018 on the theme of autism and co-occurting conditions. This conference will also include a number of other speakers and will take place on the Northop site of Coleg Cambria.
