Newsletter #2: Nov 2016


Autism 30 November 2016 Newletter
Halloween is over and the fall months are officially here. We hope you had a wonderful trick or treat night and you eased into fall with flair. We all hope with the time change in November that people are quickly back on schedule and that we all remember those brave souls on Remembrance Day.
We want to let you know that we are aware that our last newsletter, in October, gets “cut off” at the end saying: “This message has been truncated” with a link “Show full message” to continue to read the rest of the newsletter. We are trying hard to fix this issue, but have so far been unsuccessful. Please continue to click for now until we remedy this problem. We thank you for your patience.

Don’t forget to tune in November 15th, 2016 to listen to Ms. Nicole Jinn. She is a highly educated woman with autism talking about her life, journey, and the issues she faced and what she is doing for our community to help others, especially the female population on the spectrum. ​

Quote of the month:

ʺI had people in my life who didn't give up on me: my mother, my aunt, my science teacher. I had one-on-one speech therapy. I had a nanny who spent all day playing turn-taking games with me.ʺ
