Asperger seminars

Author Rudy Simone, who has Asperger Syndrome, will deliver two seminars in the Buccleuch Arms Hotel, St Boswells, on May 23.

The morning and afternoon sessions, which will consider the impact of the condition on employment and relationships respectively, have been organised by Borders Asperger and Autism Group Support (BAAGS).

“Both topics covered by this inspiring woman are very relevant to anyone who lives, works and employs a young adolescent/adult who has an autistic condition,” said BAAGS chairman Derek Purvis.

The events, including lunch, cost £65 per person (£40 if booking for six or or more). Anyone wishing to book should contact BAAGS on baagsmail@yahoo.co.uk or on 01896 668961.
