A conversation with fathers about autism©
Broadcaster Stuart Cosgrove and communications specialist John Hatfield host a discussion and Q&A to share their experiences of being fathers of autistic children.
‘A conversation with fathers about autism’ will focus on the personal experiences of these two fathers who are at very different stages in their autism journey. The aim is to encourage more fathers to be open about their own situations and experiences.
The intimate conversational event will see Stuart and John share their experiences of autism in their families. The pair will discuss the physical, mental and emotional impact of autism in a family, educational and social environment.
These events will be suitable for parents or carers of a child with an autism diagnosis, those concerned about childhood development, professionals working in education, social care or the third sector and employers wanting to understand autism’s effect on their workforce.
