Autism Awareness Week 23 - 27 February, 2015

The autism awareness week at St. Joseph’s NS reached out to the entire community with engaging seminars, workshops, educational talks, music therapy and a special ‘Blue Nose’ fundraising day at the school.  One of the highlights of the week was the visit of Adam Harris from ASIAM.ie.  Adam spoke to both pupils and parents about his own experiences of growing up with autism.  “This week in Carrabane N.S. is engaging children and adults and helping them become more autism aware.  This can help change the life experience for someone with autism” commented Adam.
