World Autism Awareness Day 2009

Me and Michelle

The Autistic Self-Advocacy Conference at World Trade Convention Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I met Michelle Dawson from Montreal and lots of people from Nova Scotia. Dennis Debbaudt was there and speaking at the conference too. We heard Michelle talk about science and ethics and research and I speaking with mom after that about raising positive awareness. Danny Melvin from the Autistic Self-Advocacy Council - Nova Scotia (ASAC-NS) and Michael Price from the Provincial Autism Centre and Michelle and mom and dad and I went out supper after the conference. It was a good day and tomorrow we're back to PEI.
