Making Sense of Autism

Making Sense Of Autism - Stephen Clements I.jpgAutism NI Patron, Stephen Clements called on local businesses, schools and communities across Northern Ireland to support Autism NI's campaign - ‘Making Sense of Autism’.

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how people communicate, how they interact with others and how they ‘make sense’ of the world’.

Stephen said, “Our new ‘Making Sense of Autism’ campaign aims to raise awareness about Autism in the classroom, in the work place and in the local community. Join us today and help raise vital funds and awareness for the Charity across Northern Ireland”.

Family Fun Days 

Families across Northern Ireland joined Autism NI and celebrated World Autism Awareness Month, this April at our five Family Fun Days.  The Family Fun Days gave ALL families an opportunity to find out more about Autism and enjoy a fun FREE interactive kids zone and health fair.
