The Coronavirus Series

Many autistic people and their families have concerns about the current situation with coronavirus also known as COVID-19.

We are pleased to announce a series of Spectrum Live episodes which will be pre-recorded and hosted on our Facebook page.

The episodes

Episode 1- 'Coronavirus, health and wellbeing'
Wednesday the 29th of April at 7:30pm
Episode 2- 'Your care and support'
Wednesday the 6th of May at 7:30pm
Episode 3- 'Supermarkets and access to food'
Wednesday the 13th of May at 7:30pm
Episode 4- Unknown. We have decided to leave this open for now as the situation ever changes and will announce soon.

How it will work?

The episodes will be recorded in advance via video link so will not be live on the day. We will have a presenter, real life autistic experiences and expert guidance on each episode. The panel has been confirmed and we will add details on this page soon.

Questions and Answers

As with all other Spectrum Live events, there will be a Question and Answer section, however the episodes will be pre-recorded. You will not be able to send in questions during the episode broadcast. Please email any questions you have for the episodes in advance to socialmedia@nas.org.uk. Whilst we hope to answer as many as possible, we may not be able to answer them all.

If you won't be able to watch it live, don't worry! A recording of the episode will be available on our Facebook page.
