AsIAm Youth Theatre Ireland Autism Friendly Resources

AsIAm are delighted to have had the opportunity to partner with Youth Theatre Ireland to create a resource book for their workshop facilitators; ‘A Handbook for Youth Theatre Facilitators; Supporting Young People on the Autism Spectrum.’ This book came about as youth theatre facilitators affiliated with Youth Theatre Ireland had been expressing their wish to learn more about autism and have a best practice guide to support them in supporting young people on the autism spectrum taking part in youth theatre workshops. AsIAm’s Education Officer Hannah O’Dwyer – who has a keen interest in all aspects of the performing arts – wrote the content of this book in collaboration with Rhona Dunnett, Research and Development Officer with Youth Theatre Ireland and Anna Galligan, Outreach Officer with Barnstorm Theatre Company. This resource was launched at the Youth Theatre Ireland Inclusion Seminar on Saturday 10th October 2020 and is available on the AsIAm website and Youth Theatre Ireland website to support all those working with young autistic people in the creative arts sector.
