Undaunted We Pressed On: Navigating the Spectrum with A Sense of Humour

Presenter: Michael McCreary

Date/Time: Thursday, December 1 2016 10:30am - 12:00pm

Room: 104AB


When Michael’s non-verbal younger brother was diagnosed with autism his parents were asked what traits they possessed that would help them to deal with life with two out of three kids on the spectrum. “A sense of humour,” they chorused. And so it began. This session will be an hour of edu-tainment as Michael – and his father, Doug – find the funny in everything from sleepless nights to “Aspie Dating Tips”, with stops at parent-teen interactions and family outings along the way. Michael’s aim is to use humour to start conversations about ASD, thereby raising awareness and acceptance.

Learning Objective:

We want you to come away from this session knowing that sometimes it is ok to laugh.
