Overview

The young Irish social entrepreneur Adam Harris was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at five years old. Drawing on his experiences, he founded AsIAm, an organization that supports people with autism and educates institutions and the general public to become more sensitive about the condition. Through media appearances, awareness-building events, and the recent RTÉ documentary Autism and Me, Adam has launched a national conversation in Ireland. 

Now, Adam brings that conversation to New York, with a special screening of the film and a moving and inspiring discussion of autism, stigma, and the important work AsIAm is doing with the support of organizations like the Ireland Funds and Social Entrepreneurs Ireland.
