AsIAm’s online seminar ‘Covid-19: Structuring an Unstructured World for Adults’, sponsored by SuperValu, will launch on the organisation’s website tomorrow.

The seminar is part of an ongoing series which offers support and useful information to the autism community. The community support events, proudly sponsored by SuperValu, previously ran in communities around Ireland but are now hosted online and shared on AsIAm and SuperValu’s social channels. The support seminars are driven by the autism community and delivered by autism experts and now focus on the changes that have arisen as a result of Covid-19. The next online seminar focuses on helping and supporting autistic adults who might be finding the current situation difficult.

The ‘Covid-19: Structuring an Unstructured World for Adults’ online seminar will be given by occupational therapist Susan Madigan and will focus on tips for adjusting to life during Covid-19 including daily planning, self-regulation and organisation within the home and minding yourself.

The seminar will finish with a Q&A session with questions submitted from the autism community in advance. Susan works in the Disability and Support Department at Dublin City University and specialises in the areas of student support services, neurodiversity and mental health. The seminar will be available from 7pm on Wednesday, 8 April on the AsIAm website and on the AsIAm and SuperValu social pages.

“As sponsors of the community support seminars we are delighted these seminars are now online to support the autism community,” said Martin Kelleher, SuperValu managing director. “Now more than ever we need to continue to support the autism community.”
