Last month, you were so kind to read, RT and share my blog, and this month I'd like to hear from you! In February, I am honored to be speaking at the Autism Society of North Carolina's annual conference in Charlotte, NC. The weekend theme is, "Autism Grows Up", and I will be speaking mainly on girls on the autism spectrum.
I need your voice.
True, I have years of knowledge and experience to share, but I've found the sounds that resonate most deeply are the ones that come from those whose voices rarely have a platform to be heard. I'd be honored to share your experiences and address your questions during my talk.
Are you in?
- If you are a female on the autism spectrum, I'd be honored to hear:
- ...how you feel your experience is different from guys.
- ...how having autism/Asperger's makes you amazing!
- ...one thing you'd like others to understand about having autism. (This is a great opportunity to clear up myths and misunderstandings.)
- If you are a parent or sibling, I'd love the same as above.
- If you are an educator, I'd love to hear:
- ...one tip that will help parents have a positive relationship with the school.
- ...one misunderstanding many parents have regarding the school.
- ...one question you would like addressed about autism and girls.
- If you want your name included - tell me - otherwise all quotes will be anonymous - as well as your (rough) age, and age of diagnosis (if applicable).
- Understand that due to time constraints I am unable to address all questions or quote everyone, but will do my best.
- Due to time, I may need to paraphrase stories.
- Post your comment below (and make a note of PRIVATE if you do not want it published.)
- Email me directly.
- Tweet me!
- Post on Facebook to either:
You are more than welcome to share this blog with anyone!
