Autistic adults feedback NEEDED
Through June 29th the IACC Strategic Plan Committee Group would appreciate if ASD adults (And those who directly support us) would clearly communicate there needs and knowledge to the IACC (Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee). But, you need to do so buy answering up to 7 questions. Below you’ll see the summary I received from Autism Speaks about this last Friday via an e-mail which was part of there E-Speaks Newsletter, requesting my feedback for the very first time. Please see the URL/ Link below for more details. And there are AMPLE details you need to read and understand BEFORE providing feedback (IF you do).
This opportunity certainly isn’t for all of us. But, if I recruit ANYONE who can help them. This post will be worth it. This is NOT a time to complain or show anger towards them. You need to be grateful that there open to reading what you might provide to them. And that there willing to hear us, even if in a very focused, and possibly in a overwhelming capacity. (Which is not intentional).

Keep in mind there meeting which is open and free to the public to attend with prior knowledge of you RSVPing for it. Is in the beginning of July is available to attend online or remotely via a conference call option too.
If you provide feedback please due so as professionally as possible. Which means being well informed of the facts is a pre-requisite. Some of the members expect us Aspies to NOT be professional. Don’t give them that satisfaction. It could make us look bad.
