  1. I’m really looking forward to this! I’ve shared it with family, too – both me and my son are Autistic.

    Just a word of warning to non-US attendees – there isn’t a PayPal option so although I was willing to pay the registration fee and donate to the event, I couldn’t.

    If there is a way to donate that doesn’t require a US credit card or cheque, could that information be shared?

    This event is getting a lot of interest in Autistic communities worldwide, my UK therapist told me about it.

Talk to us... what are you thinking?
