1) SuperValu x AsIAM, Thursday @ The Red Cow 

To support SuperValu’s continued journey in supporting the autism community, Adam Harris from AsIAM will be hosting a 90 minute workshop and education evening to better understand autism and understand how you can support members of the autism community. The workshop will take place in the Red Cow Moran Hotel in the Normande & Guernsey Suites on Thursday 26th April from 7pm – 8.30pm. The workshop will help community groups, sports clubs, school groups and residents associations understand changes they can implement to ensure they are being understanding and inclusive for people with autism. This workshop is one of many initiatives SuperValu is running with the support from AsIAm including the sensory evenings that take place across the country. This campaign focuses on a call to action around three key themes we want the wider public to think about – patience, acceptance and clarity of language. Creating a change against each of these we hope will result in an attitudinal change in the retail environment – both with customers and staff. More info: https://asiam.ie/
