Early Childhood Ireland and AsIAm Webinar Series

June 17, 2020


Early Childhood Ireland is delighted host a 3-part webinar series with AsIAm – delivering autism expertise. This 3-part webinar will be suitable for all early learning and care educators supporting children on the autism spectrum within their settings. It will serve as a refresher for those who participated in the Teach Me As I Am programme, or as an introduction for educators who have not undertaken training of this kind.


Webinar 1: Monday 22 June – What is autism?

Webinar 2: Monday 29 June – This webinar will focus on communication and the sensory environment, outlining strategies and approaches most effective when supporting a child with communication and/or sensory differences.

Webinar 3: Monday 6 July – This webinar will cover partnership with families and helping children to manage change, which is particularly relevant as we integrate to the early years setting following COVID-19 restrictions.

Fiona Ferris – Deputy Chief Executive Officer at AsIAm

Fiona joined AsIAm in 2017 as the Early Years Specialist, coming from a background of Early Years Management. She wished to contribute her own experiences of being autistic, and a parent to a child on the spectrum, to help others understand things from an autistic perspective. In her talks, Fiona aims to give practical, relatable knowledge and strategies to assist others in supporting the autistic community to meet their own individual potential and fully participate in their community. Fiona’s special interests include World War II, all things autism, her two pups Lady and Teddy and her newly discovered love of painting!
