Call for Proposals for 2013 SDS ConferenceOctober 20, 2012
The Society for Disability Studies has announced a call for proposals for their annual conference in 2013 in Orlando Florida. Location details as well as submission guidelines and specifications for each categories can be found here
Let us make our voices heard! This conference, while not autism specific, is a great way to spread our message of inclusion and let others know what works well in terms of advocating for needs and such.
This is also a good platform to try and break down stereotypes about people with disabilities
I am not the best writer so I haven’t done justice to the SDS in writing this but all the info as well as topics from past conferences are on the site I linked to. Please post any questions in the comments section and I will do my best to answer them.
