AUTISM CONFERENCE IN CORK- WITH SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETING ACCESS.
Following on from the huge success of their very first all-autistic Irish conference in Feb 2019, two more events are taking place this year in Cork.

The AUsome Autism Conferences 2020 will take place on the  29th of March & the 15th of November.

They will be held in the Rochestown Park Hotel in Cork from 9am-5pm. The cost of the conference will be €89 per person (non-refundable). These events will be of great interest to parents, professionals and people with autism themselves.

We have been informed that there will be Irish Sign Language (ISL) interpreters for all the speakers.

STUDENT PLACEMENTS/ WORK EXPERIECENCE- ALL SLOTS NOW BOOKED OUT.
Throughout the year, our service offers placement opportunities to students from a range of schools, colleges and universities.

These work experience opportunities have been very popular this year, and as a result, all our available slots for the remainder of the academic year (end of May 2020) are now full. We would like to thank everyone for their interest with working with our service.         

Sincere thanks to our manager, staff & Board members for supporting the students while they are here with us. We hope to have further slots in the new academic year Sept 2020/ January 2021 onwards, so look out for further opportunities then.
