About the Event
Self-esteem, confidence and a secure identity as autistic people is vital. Ann will look at how we can use a strengths-based approach and positive connections with our peers to ensure thriving, for us, and for our family members.
Ann is an autistic parent to a fantastic autistic adult son, and lives in an all-autistic household in Reading. Ann’s work includes advising the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi), AT-Autism, and a variety of other organisations across the country.
Ann is studying for a Masters in autism, after three previous years of Post-Graduate study and qualification in this field, and has co-led charities & School Governors, as well as advising Members of Parliament.
In a world that is too keen to say negative things about autism, developing self-esteem and identity as autistic people is ever more important, and Ann’s online presence on Twitter and other platforms is aimed at challenging negative attitudes and promoting a strengths-based approach.
