Leading Autism Care Provider Invites MPs to Meet Residents and Staff for World Autism Awareness Day
Date:3/27/2009

LONDON, March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Brookdale Care, the independent provider of residential care services for people living with Autism and other Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD), is inviting MPs and care commissioners to spend a day with residents and staff at four of its residential locations in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and North London, as part of a campaign to raise understanding of Autism and ASD in conjunction with World Autism Awareness Day on 2nd April, 2009.

These events are designed to provide an insight into a day in the life of a person living with ASD and to help remove some of the common misconceptions associated with Autism and ASD.

Lesa Walton, Care & Development Director of Brookdale Care, said today:
