Speaking to Newry Times, Chris Millar, ASD/ CAMHS Connect Coordinator said, “This event will be an inclusive fun filled family day out, promoting socialisation and integration into the community with an opportunity to meet new people, friends and experience what autism services have to offer.                                             

“You will have the opportunity to enjoy live music from our young people, watch our Musical Minds DVD, food, games, a DJ and pick up information on ASD services in the local area.
