ASD Ireland is a registered charity and a Not for profit organization that provides socially inclusive activities for people with autism and their families. Our head office is in Limerick and we provide activities to people from all over Ireland
ASD Ireland was founded by two parents Keith Enright and Caroline Hogan who both have teenagers with autism spectrum disorder. It was developed due to the lack of socially inclusive activities available for their children. It began with the development of Limerick autism group and progressed to providing a number of inclusive activities and is Now ASD Ireland. ASD Ireland is not or has ever been part of or affiliated with Autism Ireland or Irish Autism action, we are an independent charity funded by public donations/philanthropy and CSR Programs
We are Registered as a company limited by guarantee and we are audited by Barry Coffey & co accountants.
We provide, Autism camps, movement groups, psychotherapy counselling, gaming groups and camps, parking permits, ID cards, Training and education, an employment program with Lidl Ireland, Community outreach programs, adult outreach program and we are working closely with local businesses to support them to become autism/sensory friendly.
The Volunteer team that set up and runs ASD Ireland has combined experience of over 30 years and support autistic people and families of people with autism every day
Our charity is independently run by Keith Enright CEO (volunteer) with the support of a board of Directors. The board of Directors is an integral part of the organisation and they take an active role in the charity by supporting the movement groups, camps, outreach programs and employment programs. The difference in our board is that not only do they provide oversight for the running of the organisation but they are fully involved in the set up and provision of services.
We are always recruiting passionate and forward thinking board members, Interested ?

my visit to the autism friendly initiative
.. I was first amazed to see a new set of autism family car spaces �on entering currys Peter had the option of wearing an orange baseball cap, this discreetly alerts staff that this person has autism and may need a little help .. Peter was greeted by a very friendly staff member and then directed to an autism friendly check out to complete his purchase , on leaving the shop the hat is placed back on the special rack , we then had a similar experiences in TK MAXX the whole idea actually brought me to tears finally we are recognised and accepted and helped to simply shop something most people take for granted whoever is responsible for this marvellous venture .. i thank you most sincerely
my boys love it
