Quotes from other autistic delegates:
“After leaving the dialogue session I felt an unusual calm, almost as if a burden had been lifted. The dialogue session provided a safe space to discuss autism in a personal, compassionate way, with no agenda being pushed by anyone and no targets or goals being worked towards – just a safe, civilised, and mutually respectful way to engage with the subject and each other.”
“Interesting links were made between really different subjects, all with the threads of an autistic perspective running through.”
“Attending Autism Dialogue for the first time was a wonderful experience and I would enthusiastically recommend it to other autistic adults who would like to have an open and compassionate discussion about autism, their own experiences and lives, and the ways that autism can be approached, shared, and even celebrated.”
