Last nights Dad Chats was focused all around Autism Acceptance. It was a brilliant, and very informative chat.
It is autism acceptance month, and that’s something we want to show our support for! So in this chat we delved into this topic with some of our fantastic community. From talking about parenting an autistic child, to being a barber for autistic kids and adults – our community delved in and made this another brilliant chat. We chatted about the stereotypes and unhelpful assumptions people make. The fears and the joys when parenting an autistic child – this really is an unmissable chat!
