For parents, teachers and interested professionals

Ros Blackburn is an adult with Autism. At three months old she
appeared withdrawn, isolated, and very much in a world
of her own. At eighteen months she was diagnosed very severely
autistic but with average intellectual ability. Now at 41
Ros lectures nationally and internationally giving insight into
her own experiences and the care and education practices
she observed. In spite of the severe limitations imposed by her
condition, Ros displays great courage (and a strong sense
of humour) in facing her fears and tackling life?s challenges.
In this talk Ros will draw on her own experiences of living
with severe autism and her considerable experience. Ros tells it
?as it is?
