Talk: Life Beyond School with ASD – Tuesday 22 October

Rachel Woods, an ex-pupil of North Berwick High School, is coming to speak about her experiences of life beyond school as a young person with ASD. Rachel has enjoyed a great deal of success since leaving school and her story is moving, powerful and incredibly reassuring. We would like to invite parents / carers of young people with ASD to come along and hear Rachel’s story on Tuesday 22 October, from 6.30 to 7.30 pm at North Berwick High School. Rachel will show her recent TED Talk and speak about her experiences of life beyond school. There will also be an opportunity to ask Rachel any questions at the end of the session. Please email confirmation of your attendance to Lara Neri at

Many thanks and we hope that you will be able to join us.
