A very relaxed and informal picnic/get together for autistic people, both self-diagnosed and otherwise.
Feel free to bring along a carer, friend, or loved one, to support you to feel at ease on the day.
Also, bring along your own food & drink, blanket, cushion, stim toys, or whatever it is that you will enjoy on the day. If you're noise sensitive, you may want to bring along headphones, as others may make noise.
Ultimately, the day is to be enjoyed, and is to be a day of celebrating autistic pride, in an autistic space, where you can relax and feel free to stim to your hearts content and just be yourself.
*** Everyone is welcome, this is for all autistic people and allies, to celebrate all autistic people ***
There is no pressure to stay all day, you stay for however long you want.
I will bring sticky labels and pens, so as you can write your communicate preference — e.g.
«please don't interact with me» or «please initiate interaction» or
«I am happy to interact».
I will also bring a selection of stim toys and a couple of blankets.
Please invite your autistic friends.
