Community Support Archive

Welcome to our Community Support archives page. Over the course of the 2019 AsIAm are facilitated 15 community seminars. These seminars were and continue to be kindly funded and supported by SuperValu.

Each seminar focused on a different topic and theme, all of which were chosen by the autism community from a survey we commissioned in October 2018. Read more about our Community Support events here.

Each of our Community Support events were live streamed and recorded as much as possible. This page will be updated regularly with recordings and speaker presentations from events (with kind permission from our speakers), which will be available to access here.

For upcoming Community Support events, please check our Events Calendar and News & Blog.
