AsIAm is hosting twenty four Community Support Seminar talks around the country over the next twelve months. These events are for the autism community, on issues important to the community, informed by the community. The first of these talks will take place in University College Cork, in the Boole 1 lecture theatre on the theme ‘Autism in the Home‘. Topics discussed will include sensory processing and sensitivities, “autism-proofing” your home, and tips and tricks on managing a sensory environment for the family. Please register your free place on our Eventbrite page here.
