Uxbridge and South Ruislip MP, Boris Johnson marked World Autism Awareness Day with a visit to the Centre for ADHD and Autism Support.
During the visit to the centre on Field End Road he spent time meeting with families and staff and discussing some of the work and projects they are undertaking to help support those with ADHD and Autism across Hillingdon and North West London.
The Centre for ADHD and Autism Support work to support, educate and empower individuals diagnosed with ADHD or autism, their families, and the community. They provide parenting courses and workshops and twice-weekly drop in coffee mornings. There is also a drama therapy group, an adult ADHD group and a young person’s film group.
Commenting after the visit, Boris said: “I want to thank everyone at the Centre for ADHD and Autism Support for welcoming me. The Government is determined to ensure every child and adult with ADHD and autism in this country is properly supported and empowered to reach their full potential. That is why we have committed £2.6 billion for the provision of special educational needs school places – meaning families and individuals with an autism diagnosis have the very same educational opportunities as children across the country.”
