Norsaca 8th -20th October

NORSACA is a charity which provides services and support to children and adults with autism and their families. NORSACA is celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2008.

As part of their celebrations NORSACA are held an exhibition of artwork produced by students from its specialist school and further education college.

Autism affects the way people communicate and relate to those around them. It can make expressing ideas and building relationships more difficult.

For people with communication difficulties art can be an important way of expressing their thoughts and feelings, and developing new ways of communicating.

Each person with autism is a unique individual with their own abilities and needs. Each pupil’s personality is also reflected in their artwork.
