Through my membership of the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council Community Development, Culture & Ageing Strategic Policy Committee, I am promoting the view that the council should incorporate the ‘AsIWill’ action items set out in the ‘AsYouCan’ documents from AsIAm.ie in relation to promoting autism-friendly policy within the county.

I was delighted that Adam Harris, from AsIAm (which produced the ‘AsYouCan’ proposals), upon my suggestion to the committee, gave an address highlighting concerns relating to autism awareness, including an outline of the ‘AsIWill’ proposals, and I will continue to promote this cause on the council
