So this happened this week, yes there were lots of lovely people meeting to give talks and share information regarding Women, Girls and Autism. So many interesting speakers I was a bit overwhelmed and wished I really could have been there. I find it difficult to go to events like this especially midweek as I have commitments at home but I would definitely try and make it if I can sort something in the future.
The great thing about social media is that I felt I could join in which was brilliant. By using the hashtag #AutismWomen on Twitter I could follow a lot of what was going on. Obviously I couldn't home in on all the details but it was so good to be able to hear comments and statements taken from some of the speakers and those who attended.
The conference was held to get insights into diagnosis from those who are autistic themselves and also teaching methods for those in education along with the support available too. I felt really empowered by all these people and even by being there on Twitter I felt it was a place that did feel very familiar and I appreciated being a part of it even in this small way.
It was so interesting and even the preparations and organisation to the venue itself with seating was nice to see. Everything seemed well thought out and I presume if there was feedback or ways to improve anything the people at The National Autistic Society will sort it for the future. Well done to everyone involved and thank you to those people who did tweet as it really helped to grab some information.
I guess they would have great brewing facilities as well so there is no excuse why I should not get myself to one of these conferences soon. For now though please keep the info coming through on social media. I am tuning into various blogs and vlogs to learn more about the event, what a great network we have to help each. I'm feeling the love here.
So if you do find it difficult to access any event look at whether the event organisers are putting info out there as you can tune in in some way. Take a look at #AutismWomen if you are on Twitter and have a catch up. Let me know what you thought if you did attend the event I'd love to know your views.
For now though you take care and I will be back tomorrow for Pass the Remote Sunday....
Bye for now.
Every Saturday I will be talking about Autism and will review any useful information which may have been highlighted at any support groups in the week.
