Families get autism advice at outdoor movie session

AHEAD of April's Autism Awareness Month, Gladstone families were treated to an outdoor movie session at Blain Park on Saturday, as part of the Autism Queensland Go Blue for Autism campaign.

Autism Queensland's central team leader Mary Wilson said the evening had been an opportunity for families affected by autism to talk to experts in a welcoming environment.

"It was a good night," she said. 

"A lot of families were asking about what's available for their older children, and we were able to let them know what support is available."
