Autism Awareness Roscrea is a new voluntary group which was set up in 2018. It is made up mainly of parents of children with Autism. Their main aim is to improve Autism Awareness within the community and therefore lead to an enriched life for those among us with Autism, and also their families and the wider community. They also aim to assist businesses in the community to become more Autism Aware and to know how best to assist those with autism in their daily lives.
