I am in Chattanooga TN. You should consider coming to the 3rd Annual Southeast Adult Autism Symposium on Saturday, July 27, 2019, in Chattanooga. All sessions are geared toward autistic adults and young adults. For us (not including parents and ASD Professionals who will also be there) by us.

A Welcome Reception takes place the afternoon before the Symposium. A very loose and relaxed environment. A lot of prize giveaways every year at this event. A great way to make new friends.

The dinner after the Welcome Reception is a great way to continue talking with the friends you made at the Welcome Reception or make new friends at dinner. We will have a couple of hosts for different restaurants.

The Symposium is a day at the Chattanoogan Hoyel, where people get valuable information on adult autism issues they cannot find on the internet or on Facebook elsewhere (except for online groups perhaps).

After the Symposium, the Closing Reception takes place at the Chattanoogan in the form of an Ice Cream Social. Ice cream, frozen yogurt, etc. will be served up during this time.

Registration waivers are available to people who would not otherwise be able to attend the Symposium due to a financial or economic hardship that would prevent them from attending, they can contact me at [email protected].

I am an autistic adult who was officially diagnosed at the age of 40 - and founded the Symposium.

If you know of someone who would benefit from the Symposium, please share this with them. The website for the Symposium is https://www.gcaspies.org/symposium homepage.

Much thanks, Scott

This looks really interesting, thanks! I'm in Atlanta and just recently got my official autism diagnosis. I don't know if I'll be able to make the drive up to Chattanooga, but I hope I can!
