DONNA WILLIAMS WILL BE ONLINE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS ON APRIL 16, 2008|
Just a reminder that the next in our series of Awares one-day online autism seminars in 2008 features one of the world's most celebrated writers with autism, Donna Williams.
Born in Australia in 1963, Donna was eventually diagnosed as autistic in her twenties. A year after her diagnosis, her international bestseller, Nobody Nowhere, was published which she followed over the years with three sequels, Somebody Somewhere, Like Colour To The Blind and Everyday Heaven.She went on to become an international public speaker and to write four textbooks: Autism: An Inside-Out Approach, Autism and Sensing: The Unlost Instinct, Exposure Anxiety; The Invisible Cage and The Jumbled Jigsaw, as well as having a book of poetry and prose published in 2004 called Not Just Anything. She is also an accomplished sculptor, painter and composer. Recently, together with her husband, Chris Samuel, she helped create the world's first international on-line self-employment facility for people on the autistic spectrum at www.auties.org
Don't miss this unprecedented opportunity to put your questions to Donna Williams on April 16, 2008 - and please let anyone else know who might be interested.
I will actually be making the site live on the evening of April 15 British time (early morning April 16 Australian time) to give people around the world time to read Donna's paper. The seminar will officially open at 12.01am British time on April 16, 2008, and will run throughout the day until 11.29pm UK time that day.
