Adam Harris is AsIAm’s Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Adam set up AsIAm based on his own experiences growing up as a young autistic person in Ireland.
Having spent his initial school years within the special education stream, he moved to a mainstream school in Second Class and was supported by an SNA.
By secondary school age, Adam began to began to socialise independently in his teenage years. He was nonetheless frustrated at the lack of any real understanding of autism and the many examples of social inclusion which the community are subjected to. This inspired him to establishing AsIAm whilst studying for his Leaving Cert – with the aim of giving autistic people a voice and starting a national conversation.
