The Autism Twitter Town Hall is just days away. Danya is hosting the Twitter Town Hall event on Wednesday, April 27th, from 2:00–3:00 p.m. EST through its @autismonline Twitter account, using hashtag #autismtownhall. The goal of the Twitter Town Hall is to engage participants in a lively discussion about autism and, in the process, raise awareness about autism.
The topics will cover iPads and autism, executive functioning, preparing teens with autism for the transition from school to vocational/residential programs, puberty and supporting adults with autism, and promoting autism awareness among peers. We expect several experts and organizations to actively participate in the Twitter Town Hall to provide information and answer questions, including the Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders (CASD) of the Children’s National Medical Center (@childrenshealth), Organization for Autism Research (OAR) (@AutismOAR), and Community Services for Autistic Adults and Children (CSAAC) (@tweetautism).
