As a follow on from my work placement with the National Autism Team, they have asked me to do a film about autism. We started filming on 28th November. The film is about me and my experience of living with autism. It is hoped the film will be launched during Autism Awareness Week in 2020.
The National Autism Team have put me in touch with the Integrated Autism Service in Gwent. We have talked about ways the service could get involved with the Engage to Change project as a project employer.
I hope that any future opportunities for me with the organisation will help me to continue to develop my employment experience when the Engage to Change project comes to an end.
It’s been a great year for the project, and we have supported many young people in Wales with a learning disability and/or autism into work. I look forward to seeing what the next year brings. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
