A CHARITY has been busy highlighting autism to mark an awareness week.

Tracks Autism, which is based in Chells, Stevenage, has been raising the profile of Autism Awareness Week.

The charity and early years centre held a bubble day and and also had an event at the Gordon Craig last night (Friday).

Tracks teacher Alleyne Cliff said: “The point of our bubble day was to highlight autism.

“The reason bubbles were chosen by the people who organised autism week is because it’s an activity children with an autism spectrum disorder respond to, engage and participate in.”
