Autism Friendly; a day of learning about the diversity of the autism spectrum

Eventbrite - Autism Friendly

Autism Friendly is a day of learning all about the diversity of the autism spectrum bringing together autistic self-advocates, educators, students, support workers, organizations and business owners to share perspectives and come to a better understanding of autism in our community.

If you’re autistic and are willing to share something of your experience, or just want to meet informally with other autistic individuals, come on along. If you have questions or can offer a perspective on what it means to be autistic,  join us at Ryerson’s Digital Media Zone on January 11, 2014 (10:00am – 4:00pm).

Upon registration we will email you a short form to submit a question or suggest a topic.

  • The most asked questions and suggested topics will become sessions in different rooms.
  • 20 sessions available (5, 45 minute sessions in 4 different rooms on the 6th floor of the Digital Media Zone).

5, 45 minute discussions in 4 rooms between 10 and 4 pm, topics not yet listed

We want to know what means most to you, it can be anything within the topic of ASD. We expect topics of conversation will range from self-advocacy and discovery, technologies across the spectrum,  accessible employment,  independence,  and more. 

 Autism Friendly  is an opportunity to grow personally and professionally learning more about working with diversity while supporting autism in the workplace, at school and in the community.

Thank you to the EDGE Lab,  ASAN Toronto, Tactile Audio Displays Inc. and Ryerson’s Digital Media Zone for supporting Autism Friendly’s multi-sensory environment.
