Conversations with an awkward spirit: Lived experience with an Aspie
April 14, 2022, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
You’re invited to attend this fabulous, free webinar featuring consultant, advocate and self-proclaimed “awkward spirit”, Terri Robson.
In this session you will hear Terri’s personal journey, along with practical information around what you may see in school, the home, and the workplace with neurodiverse individuals. True to her commitment to demystifying what was Asperger Syndrome, Terri has a collection of helpful tips and tools that make communities, workplaces and schools more inclusive and considerate, including a discussion about the unwritten rules of social relationships that she has navigated in her life!
Terri’s story will not only leave participants with helpful information and the opportunity to hear a new first-hand perspective of neurodiversity, but an overall feeling of joy and gratitude for the “awkward spirit” in everyone’s lives.
Terri is joined by Amy Tatterton, Director of Learning and Connection at The Sinneave Family Foundation who will be facilitating the discussion and Q&A of this presentation. This is an event you don’t want to miss.

A little bit about Terri:
Terri Robson (B.Ed.) is a consultant, advocate, and self proclaimed “awkward spirit.” Terri has set out to demystify Asperger Syndrome, a diagnosis she received later in life. In 2013, that title was grouped into the umbrella diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. Imagine an aspect of your identity being “renamed” after so many years—Terri is able to give a first-hand account of this experience.
Terri’s list of accomplishments is long and she is a celebrated presenter, writer, President of the Edmonton Strathcona Lions Club, and proud member of Lions Club International, through which she has received a number of awards and certificates. She currently sits on the editorial board for the Canadian Journal of Autism Equity.
