Autism Radio returns to air for Blue Nose Week.

Byline: EDEL HUGHES

A TEMPORARY radio station that provides information to the autism community has returned to the airwaves.

Autism Radio can be found on 105.2fm in Dublin and on 106.7fm in Cork for Blue Nose Week.

It previously broadcast from April 2 to April 8 to mark World Autism Day. Launched yesterday by model Ali McDonnell, listeners can also tune in online at www.autismradio.blue.

The line-up will include interviews with experts, discussions with parents of autistic children, current affairs and relevant news.

Blue Nose Week is a campaign run by Autism Ireland to raise awareness about the community. To coincide with the project, Dundrum Town Centre is today hosting an autism-friendly day.

The charity will have a stand in the mall with a behavioural and occupational therapist on hand to give advice. All music will be turned off for the event, a quiet room with calming lights and toys provided and 10 spaces in the Tesco car park reserved for visitors.

The cinema is also hosting special screenings of Peter Rabbit at 11.15am today, tomorrow and on Thursday.
