Call for Panelists! Join us at Cineplex for World Autism Acceptance Day

Autism 2nd is WAAD and Every1Games will be at Cineplex in Oakville with Merit Motion Pictures, part of a Canada-wide series of panels taking place at Cineplex theatres across the country, this event highlights the shift from autism awareness to acceptance of neurodiversity. Yay! The panels will take place after screenings of the documentary Beyond the Spectrum and celebrates the launch of an associated app called My Autism Passport that helps families access and manage services.

I hope that the panel will share perspectives from adults with lived experience and knowledge to share about services, as well as parents who access services for their children.

If you are interested in volunteering your wisdom as a panelist with me in Oakville, Ontario please email me right away at
