As part of Autism Week in Coláiste Bhaile Chláir, we invited Adam Harris, who featured in the RTE documentary “Autism and Me” to talk to our students about having autism. Adam is a 20 year old young man who was diagnosed with autism when he was 5 years old. Adam designed and produced the website “AsIam.ie”  to create awareness, support, advocate and educate people about autism. During Adam’s talk, he discussed the importance of looking at a person with autism and seeing what they can do rather than what they cant do. He also discussed the challenges and difficulties that can occur in people who have autism.
