World Autism Day

Celebrate your Autism- Lets get Active

To celebrate World Autism day on April the 2nd, the Regional Autism Team, Brothers of Charity Southern Services and the Cork Sports Partnership have created a free user friendly booklet called ‘Celebrate your Autism- Lets get Active’.

The booklet helps sports clubs and organisations to become Autism friendly so that more children and adults with Autism can participate in sport across Cork.
Sport is important for everyone to promote mental, physical and emotional health and to feel part of your local community. Often individuals with Autism find it hard to participate in sports, skills like turn taking and coping with losing can be difficult for someone on the Autism spectrum.

The booklet aims to help sports clubs understand Autism and give practical advice on how to make simple changes that can make a big difference to someone with Autism.

The booklet is free to download on the Regional Autism team website: www.regionalasdteam.wordpress.com and is also available on the Cork Sports Ability day in UCC Mardyke Arena on the 18th of April at the Celebrate your Autism stand from 12 to3 p.m.

For more information or advice clubs can contact the Regional Autism team at asdregional@bocss.org. or Kate Feeney, Sports Inclusion Disability Officer at Cork Sports Partnership at kfeeney@corksports.ie 

Members of the Munster Rugby squad at  "Celebrate your Autism" launch along with Padraig Healy Sports Inclusion Disability Officer and members of the Regional Autism team from Brothers of Charity.
