Autism Twitter Day – Tuesday, Dec 16th pacific standard time – 9AM, 12:30 PM and 8 PM. Prizes will be given out and a panel will be available with information and to answer questions.
This is open to twitter members, specifically those who are members of the autism community, whether it be a parent, sibling or relative. If you are on the spectrum you are welcome to take part. Most of the prizes are geared to children and young adults with autism or asperger syndrome.
The hashtag to be used for autism twitter day is #ASD. This means when you post a tweet that day which is on the topic of autism – positive autism awareness, please use the hashtag, either in front or at end of the tweet. Open up a window at http://www.summize.com and input #ASD to follow along with the conversation at the specified times. Most likely they will run longer than one hour. Stay tuned here and to my blog for prize and panel info. http://autismfamiily.blogspot.com
We will be testing your knowledge on autism spectrum disorders, this is how the prizes will be awarded.
For more details I suggest going to Bonnie’s blog entry where you can grab an image to promote the event.
One of the things Bonnie is doing to attract participants is to offer prizes. She has got a number of people/organisations to donate autism related things. If you have anything you can spare to offer as a prize I’m sure Bonnie would like to have it.
