Thanks to all of the pupils, staff and families that took part in our school's Neurodiversity Week this week.
Let's all remember to be kind.
To end the week, I have included below a quote from one of our pupils in An Neidín. Last year they completed a wonderful project called Neurodiversity - My Perspective. The full project can be viewed on our school website https://www.athartadhg.ie
"People with autism can think differently compared to other people
but that’s not a bad thing because everybody thinks differently. Lots
of my friends in the special classes tend to mimic things they’ve
heard. I do this as well, but me and one of my friends made up a
game based on mimicking. We take turns mimicking a TV
advertisement like “Next up more of SpongeBob SquarePants on
Nicktoons”. My friend and I like this game, we think it’s fun."
