The training, ‘16+ Options: Education & Employment’ will be in Lumen Christi College, Derry City on Saturday 24th February 2018.  The aim of this event is to provide the young autistic adult and their parent/carer and educators opportunity to find out what pathways are available as young adult considers options at the end of post primary education.  


Mr Adam Harris, founder of AsIAm is the keynote speaker at this event.  Adam will give insight into his personal experience of living with autism and will discuss the challenges and options he faced when he approached the end of Post Primary School and how he over-came them. Speakers from the Education Authority Transition Service, University of Ulster, Cedar Foundation Education & Employment, North West Regional College and the NAS Transition and Advice team will explain what they do and the support they offer.  Other organisations which support the transition to further education and employment will also be present on the day to answer delegates questions. 


Whilst your son, daughter or student may be younger than 10, could I ask you to forward this email along with the flyer to any organisation/group, parent, carer or individual who you think would benefit from attending.  The young autistic adults attending will have opportunity to chat with Adam in a small break-away group.
