Symposium Sunday

Last weekend was great. My friends and I participated in a symposium at Jefferson. Not to brag, but we rocked it. Really loved representing my non-speaking peers. We discussed how architects can improve spaces for autistic people. It was so wonderful to be listened to by professionals. Spelling partly gives me a voice, yes. But I need others to respect that voice. Sunday that was the case and it means the world to me. Really want to thank Wendy Ross for making it possible.

  1. Hey Alex, I am so happy for the fact that you were able to represent yourself and your friends to the architects. It had to be a wonderful feeling to have those people truly value your input. I also had a chance to read the book you were published in, writers without a voice. My favorite entry was “see me”. As always I Love You and am always very proud of you. UNCLE JEFF.
