posted Nov 22, 2016, 4:15 PM by Owen Breslin

AsIAm “Autism Experience” Exhibition will visit the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel on Saturday 26th (from 9am to 4pm)November. AsIam are hosting the exhibition in association with Laois Offaly Families for Autism (LOFFA) and with the kind support of the Department of Justice and Equality.

The aim of this pop-up exhibition is to engage young people, aged 16-22, in gaining a greater insight into what it is like to live with Autism. While many people have heard the word Autism, very few truly understand it and fewer still have a sense of what it is actually like to face the challenges those with Autism experience.

This exhibition is presented in a Q&A format which makes it accessible and engaging for visitors and includes an audio guide and a range of activities to enable visitors to “step into the shoes” of someone with the condition.
