Autism Daddy Now Available For Speaking Engagements -- Check Out theVideo of My Speech!



Hey Autism Daddy fans!

Back in December of 2014 I was contacted by the great folks at Utah Valley University.  They wanted me to speak at their annual autism conference in April.

I had never done the public speaking thing, but they were offering me a free trip to Utah and when would I ever get the chance to go there!  

So I said yes and started working on a presentation.  I sent them my idea, "Things No One Ever Told Me After My Kid Was Diagnosed with Autism"

Originally I thought I'd be speaking in a small breakout session in front of 50 people or so, but they liked my idea so much they asked me to speak in front of the whole conference after lunch!  So then I thought I better get cracking!  So I worked on a speech and an accompanying PowerPoint. 

And then on April 3, 2015 yours truly went on stage in front of 500+ people and did my thing!!!

I was nervous, but it went really, really well!  And it was so AMAZING to get positive feedback in person as opposed to thru FB or blog comments or email.

So I want to do it again and again.  I want to do more public speaking engagements.  So if you're interested in having me speak at your autism event please email me at autismdaddy.fb@gmail.com

And here, without further ado, is the first 8 minutes of my 45 minute presentation in Utah...

And yes, you will see my face, but my Utah friends kept my anonymity.  They billed me and introduced me simply as "Autism Daddy"

:-)




Thanks as always for all your love & support!

  If you're gonna shop Amazon anyway, can I ask that you enter Amazon by using the search box above?  This way I can make a little money.  This blogging thing has been awesome & life changing for me... but I must admit that it's taking up a lot more time than I ever thought... so if I can make a few bucks it'll make it easier for me to justify....Love you all! Thanks!!

  1. Now that you've stuck your toe into the Public Speaking thing, are you interested in doing more? I work in the NYC area and would love to find a way to hear your whole speech. You are by far my favorite Autism and parenting blogger (the good, the bad, and the poopy).

  2. When they say, "Jump in head first", you really jumped in head first! Congratulations on the extreme honor to have been asked to speak for such a large crowd and even bigger congratulations for being able to get the words out and not pass out. Keep on speaking, it's refreshing to have someone representing how "we" really feel instead of how we're supposed to feel .

  3. Wow!!!!! Fantastic speaking! Congrats. Is there any chance we could get a link to the whole video? Your face is out there now and I (all your readers!) would be so grateful to hear your whole speech, just as we are to read your blog. Regardless, excellent job and major kudus.
