Google+ Hangout: Autism Awareness & Acceptance
Alexis Wineman’s Autism Awareness & Acceptance
Google+ Hangout with AbiliytPath
April 29th, 2013 1:00 pm Pacific Time
Do you have Autism? Know someone who does? A family member? A friend? Or simply just curious? We will be hosting a Hangout with a panel of experts to answer your questions and shed light on Autism! Through understanding, we hope the world will begin to accept Autism. Our panelists include:
Alexis Wineman: Miss Montana: Being a Miss America contestant on the autism spectrum definitely helped bring attention to my platform: “Normal is Just a Dryer Setting: Living with Autism.” But as I reflect upon the year, what’s really left an impact on me is the acceptance and support I encountered and continue to experience. For many of us on the spectrum, that’s what we hope April brings: acceptance.
