Autism Asperger’s Friendship Society and Autism Calgary are joining forces to host another fun-filled, family friendly event at the Calgary Stampede Youth Campus (1302 6th Street SE) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Watch our social media channels for more details coming soon.
In the meantime, if you’re able to volunteer for this event, your support is welcome. The more the merrier! Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
When we read or search about autism, one thing we likely notice is that a lot of the information focuses on terms that have a negative connotation. Words like “inflexible,” “rigid,” or “lack of.” But we know that the medical model and definition of autism doesn’t tell the whole story and we are passionate about doing what we can to change the narrative.
In this free, one-hour session, we will celebrate the positive traits and characteristics associated with autism, by viewing them through a strength-based lens. Participants will have an opportunity to share and discuss their own positive traits, enhancing their understanding and empowering them to continue changing the language around autism.
Join us Thursday, March 16, 2023 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. at The Ability Hub (300, 3820 24th Avenue NW)
