The University of Kent are holding an autism awareness day on Wednesday 1st April 2015, as part of World Autism Awareness Week.
Activities will include an autism awareness library exhibition and rainbow spectrum quiz, where you can see how far you reach on our spectrum rainbow.
From 2:30 – 4pm, Imagining Autism will be holding an interactive performance in their immersive environments in Jarman Studio 2 (School of Arts). You can step into their ‘pod’ to discover the sensory environments that can help autistic children, and develop key physical interactions.
All events are hosted by our Students With Disabilities Officer, Jenna Charlton, and aim to raise awareness and support for students on the autistic spectrum.
