The London Service for Autism Sunday 2010

A British Government Minister, Stephen Timms MP the Financial Secretary to HM Treasury, Health Select Committee member Lee Scott MP, Redbridge Council leader Cllr Keith Prince, joined hundreds of people at the London Service for Autism Sunday on 14th February at All Saint’s Church, Woodford Wells, one of the largest churches in London.

The multi-sensory service included PECs pictures, drama sketches on disability and makaton signing. Parents, carers, children and adults with autism and Asperger’s attended the London Service for Autism Sunday. A host of dignitaries including Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Opposition Leader David Cameron had sent messages of support for Autism Sunday, now a massive worldwide event.

Autism Sunday was founded in 2002 Autism Awareness Year in the UK, by parents and carers Ivan and Charika Corea. They have a 14 year old son with autism spectrum disorder. The couple appealed to Prime Minister Gordon Brown to reach out and help poor families with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome in the UK and also urged the Government to help re-build the Autism Clinic in Haiti, devastated by the recent earthquake.
