We are thrilled to welcome best selling author, autism expert and Netflix Love on the Spectrum expert, Jennifer Cook to Shine Educate events on Wednesday 29th of June. Jennifer will explore developing and instilling autistic pride.
Jennifer says “Being proud of who and how you are can be tough when, quite frankly, you spend a lot of your time feeling awkward or anxious. Let’s change that. Being autistic means your brain is hardwired to learn patterns, including those you need to crack hidden social codes. So let’s talk through the secret instructions to the game of life and find our footing. Because it’s time to be resilient. And empowered. It’s time to stand up tall. And be YOU”
Tickets for this event are limited and so early booking is advised
