An author will launch her book on autism and host a networking day about the condition this week.

Lauren Smith has high functioning autism and is studying for a degree in special education at the University of East London.

She has written a book about her experiences called Tick Tock: It’s Time To Listen, which will be launched at Weston Museum, in Burlington Street, on Friday from 5.30-7.30pm.

On Saturday, a networking day will take place at Locking Castle Church, in Jasmine Way, from 11.30-3.30pm.

This free event will include presentations from guest speakers and stalls covering topics such as how to use pets as therapy.

Lauren said: “My book features a series of poems documenting my experiences of navigating the education system as a young person with autism.

“There will be a chance to learn more about support services, listen to personal experiences and participate in well-being activities.”
