Hello, and welcome to day six of my Autism Acceptance Month post series!
In today's post, rather than discussing a specific Autism-related issue as I've done in the past posts, I'm simply going to highlight an upcoming event that everyone who's interested in Autism acceptance and lives in Elmhurst Illinois and/or the surrounding area should check out. It's a panel discussion entitled Beyond Awareness that will feature at least four Autistic panelists of various different ages and backgrounds speaking about our own experiences with Autism.
The panel is taking place on Thursday April 13th at York High School in Elmhurst Illinois in forum room A294. It will start at 6:30 pm, and we're predicting that it will be over by 8:00 pm unless the audience question and answer session lasts longer than anticipated. It is open to the public, and former Elmhurst mayor Pete DiCianni will be facilitating the discussion. The information is all listed out on the flyer below, which should be screen-reader accessible (I put the image description in alt-text, please let me know if it isn't working).
I hope to see you there!
