Autism Hour Launched by Middlesbrough Libraries

By Published November 30, 2018

MIDDLESBROUGH Libraries are launching a weekly autism hour on Saturday, December 1 from 9.30am-10.30am at Middlesbrough Central Library.

During this hour library staff who have undergone Autism Awareness training will endeavour to make the building and facilities a more autism friendly environment. Lights will be dimmed and a quiet space will be available if needed.

Social stories and a floor plan of the lending library will be available to borrow at the library counter and the plans will also be available on the council website prior to a visit. Autism Awareness trained staff are ready to assist if required. 

Further autism friendly activities are planned for the future, with a special autism friendly Harry Potter session on Thursday, February 7 2019.
