After a speech about self-advocacy by James Williams (an author with autism) on Saturday, the summit attendees were treated to a delicious buffet lunch. In the afternoon, there were three rounds of breakout sessions on topics such as positive thinking, social interaction skills, and Vocational Rehabilitation. The summit concluded with a dance party at which door prizes were given away.
The Annual Youth Summit encourages its attendees to be confident, productive adults with disabilities. Since I'm 30, this was my last summit, but I went away from it with happy memories.
