Anna Kennedy, autism campaigner and founder of Hillingdon Manor School, has announced the inaugural Step in the Right Direction Autism Dance Day for Friday 27 April 2012.
This new project aims to get large numbers of special needs and mainstream schools across the country involved in organising dance events to raise funds for autism. The events will be open to all, those with and without autism, and event organisers will be encouraged to involve parents, siblings, school governors and the local community.
In 2011, Mrs Kennedy produced the Step in the Right Direction DVD, in association with Pineapple Dance Studios, which highlighted the benefits of dance for those with autism.
