NO REPRO FEE 09/06/2016. Pictured at the launch of Ireland’s Autism Registry are (LtoR) Professor Louise Gallagher (Trinity College Dublin) Minister for children and youth affairs Katherine Zappone and Geraldine Leader (NUI Galway). The Registry is a joint collaboration between NUI Galway, Trinity College Dublin and Autism Speaks. The Registry will gather information on diagnosis, development, medical and educational history in order to identify services needed for children with autism in a particular area. The pilot phase of the Registry will begin in Kildare/West Wicklow with hopes to extend it nationally later this year. Photography: Sasko Lazarov/Photocall Ireland
