This week a remarkable documentary aired on RTE. Autism and Me looked at the lives of young people living with mild to severe forms of autism.
The documentary was hugely powerful & educational. Each young person featured is unique & this highlighted the issue of generalisation of people on the autistic spectrum.
Ag Eisteacht trainers have done a huge amount of work with frontline workers in the disability sector recently & it was wonderful to see the close relationships the young people had with their support workers, SNA’s & their teachers.
If you didn’t get to see the documentary first time round it is available on the RTE player here.
