I’m Rhiarn. I am an early childhood educator and I am almost finished my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education (birth to 12).
This is my third year participating in the Walk for Autism. I originally joined a team to support one of my students and her family. I have continued to participate because I believe that raising awareness and educating people about autism and other disabilities and impairments is crucial to creating a world where everyone is included and feels a sense of belonging.
My favourite part of the Walk for Autism is the amazing conversations I have with people, sometimes complete strangers, just because I’m wearing a green shirt!
If you are able to donate, that’s great, but if everyone can learn something about autism, share their knowledge with others, and treat people who experience Autism with dignity and care... then we can actually make a huge difference!
I'm walking for....
I’ve stepped up to Walk for autism to help create a world where no-one on the autism spectrum is left behind.
I’ll be challenging myself to walk 10,000 steps a day for 8 days while raising much needed funds to support people on the autism spectrum.
An estimated 1 in every 70 people is on the spectrum. Along with their family members, this means autism is a part of daily life for over a million Australians.
People on the spectrum see, hear, feel and experience the world differently. For many, simply coping with the everyday can lead to confusion, anxiety and isolation.
By coming together and taking action, we can help provide opportunities for people on the autism spectrum to participate, engage and thrive in the world around them.
Help make my steps count and show your support by donating today!
