ASDES have been holding their 5th Annual Autism Day at Tapestri, Swansea. It’s been a day of talks and discussions about how best to understand and support people with autism. Parents, carers, professionals, and people with diagnosis got together and shared best practice and great experiences.
We ended the day with the world premier of the film Animated ASDES. This film was the culmination of a month long project in which we worked on ways to enable our ASDES ambassadors to get their voices heard. We recorded messages to employers with ideas on how to get the best out of people with autism when they reach interview. ASDES works closely with individuals to ensure that they’re best supported when entering the workplace so it was important we got the message right.
The Animated ASDES film was received well by everyone today and it will now go on to represent the charity in the best possible way. It’s great working with such smart, funny, animated, intelligent, articulate, caring people who deserve to be listened to. This project which has been funded by Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board.
