April is Autism month, and at Creating Connections Australia we are preparing to celebrate!
One of the ways that we will be celebrating is through our ‘How do you best Communicate’ competition. This competition is all about finding out from an autistic person / person with autism how they like to communicate most, and then sharing what you have learned. The focus will be on learning from people on the spectrum, and first-hand experiences.
By entering the competition, not only will you have the opportunity to learn more about how people on the spectrum communicate, but you will have the opportunity to WIN a day’s workshop attendance (to the value of $125) with Creating Connections Australia.
So how do you enter? By following the steps below.
1. Ask an autistic person / person with autism about how they communicate.
You might like to ask some of the following questions:
– What do you find hard about communicating or talking with others?
– What is the easiest and best way for you to communicate?
– How can other people best support you with communication?
If you’re on the spectrum yourself, there’s no need to ask anyone else, you can simply make it a chance for some self-reflection!
Not sure how to ask a person with autism about how they communicate? Ask one of the CCA team! We’ll put you in touch with one of our team members who can give you a first-hand perspective.
2. Share with us what you have learned.
Tell us what you have learned by leaving a comment. You can comment below on this blog post, you can comment on our social media pages, or you can email or text message/call us if you would prefer not to enter online in a public forum.
What happens then?
Entries to the competition will close on Saturday 30th April 2016 at 5pm Australian EST. The winner will be drawn from entries received and will be contacted on Monday 1st May 2016 via email / phone.
The judging decision (as to the winner) will be final and no correspondence will be entered into. The recipient of the prize will have 12 months from the date of issue to use the workshop credit voucher, attending a public workshop day of their choice (to the maximum value of $125). The voucher may be transferred to another person upon request and with prior approval from Creating Connections Australia. The voucher may be used for one workshop attendee only, and workshop attendance using the voucher will be charged at the standard professional rate.
Creating Connections Australia will not be responsible for any additional costs involved in attending workshops, or for providing public workshop dates/times to suit individual requests.
