Welcome to our monthly update for September!
This month, as schools and colleges across Ireland reopen for the 2017/18 year, we’ll be coordinating our work around the central theme of education. Comprehensive information will be uploaded and posted onto the website to advise and inform our community of the different services and supports available throughout one’s school and college lives. These will include advice on registering for disability services at third level, outlining the different types of support one can access in special and mainstream schools, as well as signposting other sources and contacts you can talk to if in need.
We will also be hosting a series of personal blogs from contributors right across Ireland’s autism community about starting school and college throughout the month. These will feature the range of opportunities and challenges autistic students encounter, highlighting not only the diversity of autism as a condition, but also the different pathways available to those affected by it.
