A Life Of My Own
Date: Tuesday 2nd February 2016
Aileen Mc Gee
Engaging Positively with the Challenge of Autism and Similar Life Situations
On Tuesday 17th November 2016 Aileen Mc Gee’s second book, A Life of Our Own, was launched by Omagh born journalist, author and columnist, Martina Devlin, here at the Tara Centre. In this book Aileen chronicles her 18 year long journey towards claiming a life of her own while at the same time relentlessly pursuing every known and unknown avenue towards ensuring a life of his own for her autistic son, Cian.
The energy in the hall that night was truly inspiring as mother read key passages from her book while family, friends and the general public witnessed the relatively independent life she had secured for Cian.
Workshop 2 – A Life of My Own
In this six week programme participants can explore in depth how to grasp the nuggets of wisdom distilled from Aileen’s experience, consider similar challenges life may be presenting for them, not exclusively with regard to autism, and find ways in which they too can map out a life of their own.
Dates: Tuesday 2nd February -8th March 2016 (inclusive) 10:30am-12:30pm
