Autism Information Hub

The Autism Information Hub at Gateshead Central Library has been developed in response to a need identified through consultation with people with autism and their parents and carers and as part of the work of the Gateshead Autism Strategy Group, which aims to increase awareness and understanding of autism and improve access to services for people with autism.

 

The Council’s library service has a range of books about autism and related topics such as diagnosis, sensory differences, anxiety, sleep and social skills, which are free to reserve and library staff are autism-awareness trained to help people find relevant information. A quiet space is also available at Central.

 

A monthly drop in session, delivered by Council’s Special Educational Needs Improvement Team (SENIT) takes place on the second Monday morning of each month, at Central Library, from 9.30am to 11:30am. 

 

If you’re nervous about visiting the library for the first time and wish to know what to expect, please contact us and we’ll arrange for someone to talk with you or to show you around. You may also find it useful to take a look at A Guide to Gateshead Libraries
