Why should you come to the autism panel? Because the women who are speaking about autism represent a range of autism experiences and perspectives. They are articulate, experienced, compassionate advocates. Because you'll learn so much, that you will have an epiphany about what autism means whether you want to or not. (I'm a bit gobsmacked, as my friend and 2008 panel moderator Susan would say -- and I'm one of the speakers.) Trust me, you'll be disappointed if you miss this panel, especially if autism touches your life in any way. See you Friday.
