Last Friday as part of Stand Up  Awareness Week our TY Students attended the AsIAm workshop. This workshop gave our TY students a deeper understanding of Autism. The story of AsIAm began in 2014 when our CEO Adam Harris founded the organisation based on his own experiences growing up as a young autistic person in Ireland.

Diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome from an early age, the condition was far less understood or even known as it is today.

Frustrated at the lack of any real understanding of autism and by the many barriers to inclusion the autism community were and are subjected to,  Adam’s aim was to amplify autistic voice and start a national conversation.

What began, in 2014, as an online platform for the community to access information and share experiences quickly grew into a movement for change for the autism community.
