As many of you know (or maybe not) I have always had this huge fascination with autism. I have been to many conferences over the years and love all the information they have to offer. I am super excited this upcoming weekend to have the opportunity to hear Temple Grandin speak IN PERSON! I have watched her movie, read her book and have seen her speak on varies talk shows and documentaries, but to be in the same room as her will be such an honor. Who better to get information on autism from, than someone who has autism. Right?
This school year I will be adding 3 incoming students to my class. All boys, all with autism. I figure the more I know, the better equipped I am to be the teacher they deserve. So here's to hoping I learn many new things this weekend!
Here is a link to the conference (it's in Pasadena Ca) if anyone wants to make some last minute plans. It looks like it's going to be a good one!
