Wendy Lawson coming to Wales on April 20, 2009|
NEWPORT, Wales: Wendy Lawson is an adult with an autism spectrum disorder. Wendy prefers the word ‘diffability’ to disorder and her research seeks to explore what being differently abled means in the world of neuro-diversity. Currently Wendy is working towards her PhD in Psychology with Deakin University, Victoria, Australia. Wendy’s work explores the influence of neurological development in individuals with autism with reference to impact on learning styles.
As a writer, poet and adult educator, Wendy is well-known in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Sharing her knowledge, understanding and experience of autistic spectrum disorders has been Wendy's occupation over the past 12 years.
To date, Wendy has written 7 books varying from her autobiography to an everyday text on autism and a book about friendships. Her latest book is all about the concepts of what being normal might mean for each of us.
Wendy is coming to Newport, South Wales on April 20, 2009, from 11am to 2pm to talk about the Changing Face of Autism. If you have never heard Wendy speak, this is a talk not to be missed and if you have heard Wendy before, I am sure you will want to book again!
