About this event

Most of us will have heard the phrases “autism” or “autistic” at some point in our lives, and might have an image of what autism ‘is’ in our minds. It might be a celebrity, a friend or family member, someone we work with, or a character from a film or TV series.

Autism is widely known yet it not widely understood. No one can ‘look’ or ‘sound’ autistic. No two people with autism experience the condition or process their surroundings the same way. It is an invisible disability that impacts different people to different degrees across all ages, ethnicities, genders, nationalities and sexual orientations.

Our 'Introduction to Autism' workshop will last around 50mins, with time afterwards for questions, and will be run by our Training Officer James Moroney. It is designed to educate you on Autism and the barriers that our society puts in the way of the Autistic community. The workshop will cover the following topics;

The Language of Inclusion


Why Autism Awareness is important

What is Autism


Social Interaction

Social Imagination

Sensory Processing

Anxiety and Sensory Overload
