Autism Cymru: Launch of Deis Cyfle
Thursday, 6 May 2010
Autism Cymru will be marking World Autism Awareness Day by officially launching the new project, Deis-Cyfle!, at the Senedd on Monday 10th May 2010.
Deis-Cyfle means Opportunity in both Irish and Welsh. In collaboration with The Irish Society for Autism, Autism Cymru, Wales' national charity, is developing Deis-Cyfle as a three day training programme and self evaluation tool. It is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
Deis-Cyfle! aims to increase employability and provide greater opportunities for school leavers with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, by providing greater knowledge and understanding of Autism. Training materials will be tailored for secondary school teachers, leisure and higher/further education providers and employers of people with Autism. Ultimately, the project aims to enable individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder to achieve their potential in the world of employment, leisure and education.
Working together, both charities will offer a wide range of complementary skills in training, providing in-depth knowledge and internationally renowned practice expertise to enhance the secondary school life of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and enable them to achieve a successful and happy educational and employment future.
For further information on the project please contact Lynn Plimley E: firstname.lastname@example.org
