Autism Awareness Week 2017. Will I see you?

jim taylor will be speaking at autism awareness week

Another Autism Awareness Week is upon us. Over the last month or so, I have asked 100 people (an exaggeration…) what it is that we should be aware of, what is the message? It’s not an exaggeration to note that the answers have been varied and inconsistent. I’ll look forward to the debate, the discussion, the conversations but maybe this will be the year that we will move things forward?

It will be a busy week and I will be speaking at the following events. If any of you are attending the following events, come and say hello, teach me stuff, tell me what you think;
