Lucy, Harry, Devonne, Connagh and Ben have been involved in the creation of a film and an e-book entitled 'Take Time To Allow Time'.
The film and e-book were created in collaboration with NHS England, Triple A (All About Autism), Cumbria County Council and North Cumbria Clinical Commisioning Group.
Our students were part of a focus group that identified the key themes that should be included in the project, they took part in the film and four of them attended the launch at 'The People First Conference Centre' in Carlisle. Unfortunately Harry was unable to attend the launch because he was diligently preparing for his GCSE exams.
At the launch they were able to see the final version of the film as well as listen to the inspiration behind the project. They were invited up to say a few words and it was lovely to hear Ben describe the experience as 'the best in his life so far' and Devonne talk about the importance of teachers being aware of the difficulties that autistic students face in the classroom.
