Early Autism Ambassador

Anna Kennedy OBE, joined us as an Early Autism Ambassador, in April 2014.

“Early intervention for young children with autism is crucial and the work going on at the Centre is truly fantastic! It is indeed a flagship setting for the under-fives and their national training and outreach programmes are in demand. I met with the staff and some of the parents and was encouraged to hear about the impact it has on their children and families. I am delighted to be joining this team and look forward to supporting their work.”
