Video Launch of the Petra Ecclestone Foundation

23rd OCTOBER 2017

As the building work commences on the first of the Petra’s Place Therapy Centres for Autistic children in Kensington & Chelsea Petra Ecclestone met with parents and their families to discuss their hopes and needs. And Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, Director of the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University discusses her vision and the scope for improvement in the offering of therapeutic care in the UK in this short film.

The new centre will offer advanced treatments to children from the age of 20 months to 6 years old and also the much-needed support for the families of these children. The selection process of the children and criteria for entry to the centre is being finalised and will be announced shortly. Please re-visit the website for updates.

“Early diagnosis is the key for helping young children with autism and I am delighted to be able to provide a centre offering everything these young children and their families need under one roof,” explained Petra Ecclestone.
