Event feedback

Hello I’m a parent of a 5 year old autistic boy and I attended the autism show in Manchester yesterday with my husband and we found Yvonne’s presentation very helpful and informative so much so we went to her stall.

She helped us so much and put us in touch with people who will help us as we have not been given enough support from the organisations involved with my son.

She went the extra mile and we wanted to say we are very grateful. Thank you.
