We would like to invite everyone in our community to an ‘around the table’ after-school session at Hillbrook, on Tuesday 23 May, to meet Rebecca Sharrock, Autism Advocate, Writer, Speaker and Research Participant. Afternoon tea will be provided. Neurodiversity is a natural and valuable form of human diversity. As Alexander Graham Bell once said, “Great discoveries and improvements invariably involve the cooperation of many minds.” So that we might better understand how people process information differently, Rebecca will speak to us about:
- Her own story
- How parents and teachers of children with autism, depression, OCD and anxiety might build better communication strategies with one another.
- The things many children with autism wish their friends, parents, teachers and siblings knew to say or do, or not to say or do.
- The coping mechanisms and strategies that have worked for her.
- HSAM – living with Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory
