|Spectrum voices Conversation
We are making good progress in creating a model of autistic engagement.
Spectrum Voices Conversation meets every Sunday for one hour.
Authentically Autistic conversation is the goal.
It is a space developed for inclusion of autistic people and self regulated by its wholly autistic membership.
Autistic members support each other in communication and expression of ideas. The conversation feeds autistic participation into the Forum.
Spectrum Voices Forum is open to a wider participation group.
The model we follow is one that partners with other organisations in a non exclusive way. The Autistic members intend to reach out and engage with new organisations over time.
We are pleased to continue our association with Mr Richard Ibbotson
and Ms Lyndsey Stewart of Autism Network Scotland and Strathclyde University.
Both professionals have continued to communicate with us and offer support and advice.
Current projects include:
Ocalicon Conference 2022.
Its a week since we decided to apply to present at this international conference for professionals associated with autism.
Julian and Harry have committee to make the presentation and Maurice and Justin will continue to inform them with ideas to be communicated.
Title – Spectrum Voices Case study
Subtitle – Autistically informed Engagement presented by Autistics
We will offer practical solutions to the main difficulties experienced by professionals looking to create meaningful dialogue with us.
Deadline end of Month!!!
The next deadline is a few weeks away. We have agreed to apply to present also at Autscape.
Our idea so far is based on the Autistic radio project as a method to reach out to our community.

We are really humming on this one. The speed at which we have progressed has surprised us all.
Looking forward to the one hour meeting – Spectrum Voices Forum 10 AM Tuesday 22 March 2022.
