Sligo Autism Mediation Service (SAMS)


Autism presents a lot of challenges, both for the affected child as for their parents and caregivers. I can help your child to relate and adapt better to their environment, and I can help you to get a better understanding of your autistic child. This service is free.

Iím a fully qualified childcare worker (FETAC 6) and special needs assistant (FETAC 5). While I have always related very well to children in general, I realised during my work in childcare that I connect particularly well to autistic children with whom I had a number of breakthroughs. The reason for this became apparent in 2014 when I was diagnosed with Aspergerís Syndrome myself.
