Autistic artistic showcase
On Wednesday, 6 December, the Kent Youth County Council Disability Awareness project group led an event, showcasing to professionals from across KCC and Kent schools the experiences of autistic young people in school. The group has been working this year to create resources to support the rollout of the Autism Education Trust training, providing the voice and perspective of autistic young people in Kent.
Young people sent in artwork, written stories and voice recordings sharing their experiences of when they felt supported in school, as well as when they were left feeling unsupported and their recommendations for schools and education providers in Kent. You can hear what young people told us.
If you know a young person aged 11-18 years who would like to get involved in having their say in shaping services please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
