Oprah-Winfreying Crowds at the Autism Society National Conference
July 15, 2011
It was a pleasing opportunity to kick our DVD release into the end zone of the Autism Society's popular annual conference last post-July Fourth weekend.
Willing to leave total work of leading presentation to planner, practiced Powerpointer, Gerry Wurzburg, Tracy and I mumbled our prepared, typed commentary to the entirely Oprah-Winfreying-our-every word, picture-popping audience at the gala-ready convention center in Orlando.
It was lots of opera-like applause that we milked, signing DVDs and posing for movie star, passing as old actors like Ted Danson of B-movie stardom, for pictures.
Larry Bissonnette is an advocate and artist who lives in Milton, Vermont and has had his work exhibited regularly both locally and nationally. In 1991, Larry learned to communicate through typing and began combining words with his art to express his thoughts and ideas. Over the past 15 years, he has been a featured presenter at many educational conferences and has written and spoken on the topics of autism, communication and art.
