AsIAm, proudly supported by SuperValu, are delighted to continue their series of webinars with ‘Voices of the Community: Starting the Autism Journey, A Parent’s Perspective’ on 24 March at 7pm.
The online seminar will explore the experiences of parents who have started out on their family’s autism journey. This marks the fifth webinar in the 2021 series that continues to bring informative topics and valuable advice to the autism community. The community support events can be accessed online and through AsIAm and SuperValu’s social channels. To register for the ‘Voices of the Community’ virtual seminar click here:
The upcoming webinar will provide a unique platform for a number of parents to speak first-hand of their experiences with autism. On the night, parents Ciara Jones, Cathal McDaniels and Caroline Poole will each speak to their own personal stories about their family’s journey with autism. The parents will discuss their individual experiences to date, the process of understanding their child’s autism, accessing support and sharing their own family’s milestones and progress. Due to the nature of this upcoming webinar, it will only be available through the livestream and will not be recorded for later viewing.
Adam Harris, CEO of AsIAm, said the group is “hrilled to continue to deliver Community Support Seminars to families across Ireland with the kind support of SuperValu.
“With the changing nature of our environments over the past year, it is vital to provide additional support to our community,” Harris said. “As all seminars are available live online, members from across Ireland have the opportunity to gain knowledge and advice from trained experts.”
Ian Allen, managing director at SuperValu said: “As sponsors of the community support seminars we are delighted to witness their continued success and value to the autism community. During this challenging time it is vital that we support the autism community now more than ever and ensure resources such as the webinar series continue to provide support and create pathways for greater inclusion across Ireland.”
SuperValu says it is committed to raising understanding and awareness of autism among its customers and staff. With over 50,000 families in Ireland living with autism, those affected face barriers to inclusion because of the attitudes of people who may not have first-hand experience of autism.
