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.

  • If you are interested in ideas, radio is way more pure than television. You’re not distracted by somebody’s nose or hair or posture. You can really see how someone thinks and penetrate to the essence of who that person is. – Terry Gross
