All I want for Christmas

AsIAm.ie is all about YOUR views, experiences and ideas. What better time to ask you for these than as we prepare to end one year and start the next.

Christmas is a time when people ask for all sorts of presents from Santa Claus yet we have no doubt that people affected by Autism, and their families, have so many “presents” they would like for the Autism community that Santa couldn’t possible bring everything! We hope to step in where he leaves off!

At our forum thread below tell us what you would like for the Autism community this Christmas.

Whether it is more research or funding, a better understanding from the public or better opportunities for those with Autism in education or employment or anything else – write a simple message on the forum thread and we will try and collate this information as part of our efforts to identify our main focus areas for next year!

Take the mic!
