The fifth annual World Autism Awareness Day took place on 2nd April 2012. To mark this special occasion the Irish Society for Autism launched “Reflections and Personal Experience on the Charter of Rights for People with Autism” in European Union House on Dawson Street.
The book was compiled and edited by Dr. Pat Matthews and Tara Matthews MSc. of the Irish Society for Autism. A paperback edition is available in all good book shops and on the publishers website http://www.originalwriting.ie/ priced at €15. All proceeds from the sale of the publication will go directly to the Irish Society for Autism and the World Autism Organisation.
The Society also announced the International Conference which will take place in Dublin 2013 to celebrate the Irish Society’s 50 years providing services to people with Autism and their families.
