"Three weeks ago I've been to amajor autism congress in Germany, the "11th wholecountry autism congress" or alike; it's got the motto"autism is subject of changes - changes arechallenges". So we (two major self-organized aspieprojects) had the idea to show ourselves their byhaving a stand with papers and books. At first thechairwoman of the German autism organisation (they ranthe congress) weren't willing at all to allow us to doso. But fortunately she was on holidays the weeksbefore and her deputy at the end gave us thepermission. At the congress he even came to us saying"Hello". The congress was quite huge, more than 1000participants I guess, and all the "autism experts"were there but as well quite some autistics. Ourstands (we had two :-)) have been a (small) sensationand we talked a lot with people (mostly physicians orpsychologists) who were amazed seeing aspiesorganising themselves - without NT guidance. At theclosing meeting one psychologist stood up and said,for her the aspie stands have been the highlight ofthe congress. All in all I suppose we've been quitesuccessfull there."
The letter goes on to explain lots of interesting events in association with the congress.
(dirty Humor) I wish some of the organizers of the conventions I have tried to get into might go on vacation. It seems to do the world good to hear from others in the spectrum. Rich
