Autism Wessex Celebrating 50 Years - Nigel's Story
A Father’s Legacy for his Son – A Lifetime of Support
Nigel Broadfield was 6 years old when he was diagnosed with autism. The year was 1973, a time when children with autism were routinely placed in institutions, dismissed as unmanageable and un-treatable. Nigel’s parents refused to accept this and in their quest to find suitable support for him, Dad Terry dedicated his life to improving services for people with autism with us. This year marks our 50th Birthday and the 36th year that Nigel has been supported by us. This is Nigel and his late Father Terry’s story.
