Autism Awareness Puppet Show

We were delighted to welcome the Autism Awareness Puppet Show team to St. Joseph’s recently.  They educated the children towards the importance of including all children in their play and work, particularly children who have Autism or Asperger’s syndrome.  The children listened intently to the description of how children with Autism or Asperger’s syndrome needs maybe different from their own.  It offered the children the opportunity to see, how to participate in inclusive play and the significance of this type of play.    The children also discovered that people one of the worlds most successful and richest person,  Bill Gates has Autism, others included Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton.   The children were encouraged to the take part in a question and answer session afterwards.  All the children found this very informative and interesting.
