Please join in on autism twitter day Tuesday, December 16, 2008 to promote positive autism awareness. There are blog posts here showing the prizes to be awarded based on your autism knowledge.
There will be panel members at 9AM, 12:30PM and 8:00PM pacific standard time. Questions will be tweeted at those times as well as throughout the day. Please follow and use #ASD hashtag to post on autism by sharing about your family experience, school, bus, behavior, therapies, diets, social skills, independent living, hygiene, bullying, IEPs, respite, books, toys, etc. that have helped your family. This includes sharing links to your sites and blog posts.
This is open to twitter members, specifically those who are members of the autism community, whether it be a parent, sibling or relative. If you are on the spectrum you are welcome to take part. Anyone can take part to learn more about autism spectrum disorders. Most of the prizes are geared to children and young adults with autism or asperger syndrome. Some prizes are available to US members only, others are for US and Canada with International available for a few as well. It will be noted when tweeting about the prize who is eligible to receive it.
