Action in Autism is a non-profit organisation created by parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) to improve the quality of life of people with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their caregivers by building partnerships between people with ASD, their families and the community to provide information, services, learning and research.

The workshop is facilitated by five well known experts in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorders. These workshops have already empowered well over 350 people in the province of KwaZulu-Natal.
The workshop runs from 1pm – 4pm on Friday (11 October 2013). On Saturday (12 October 2013), the workshop runs from and 8:30am – 4pm.
