Niamh Mellerick is AsIAm’s Community Support Manager, a role that is currently focused on creating a national autism information line to be launched in late autumn. The information line will provide a direct contact for the Irish autism community to call and seek information on a wide range of autism related issues. Niamh is a senior occupational therapist with considerable hands-on experience working with autistic children, young people, and families. Niamh was also an occupational therapy lecturer for three years, and has recently completed a Master of Science in occupational therapy. Niamh is hugely excited to be working alongside the team in creating the information line, a role that embodies the occupational therapy values of education and advocacy so well.
