Now Reading: Autism Daddy Now Available For Speaking Engagements — Check Out the Video of My Speech!
June 20, 2015
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 [email protected]
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!
