Autism Awareness December 2023

Fontys Information and Communication Technology


In the weeks of 4 and 11 December, Fontys' autism ambassador (Roy Houtkamp) was again active in raising awareness.

On 7 December, he was at the Eindhoven municipality to assist with peer review. This group already had experience with autism and the expertise and experience was especially called upon to give input on specific cases.

On 11 December, he attended the Venlo location, where he gave a workshop on the basics of autism to the study programmes' T&L tutors. Also discussed there was Student+ as a possibility for the Venlo campus.

On 14 December, the ambassador was again at the Eindhoven municipality. This time with the group of employees who really wanted to know the basics about autism. Here, then, the AAP (Autism Awareness Project) workshop was given, which was also done in Venlo.

All three meetings were a success. They were well received and useful knowledge was exchanged.
