UXPA Austin Book Club - Neurotribes Part 1

Link visible for attendees

Hello, fellow UXers,

In honor of Autism Awareness Month in April as well as Global Accessibility Day in May, I am excited to announce our next UX Book Club book we will be going over will be Neurotribes - The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity by Steve Silberman!

For the upcoming April UX Book Club, we will be going over the following chapters:

Introduction - Beyond The Geek Syndrome

Chapter 1 - The Wizard Of Calpham Common

Chapter 2 - The Boy Who Loves Green Straws

We will be having our UX Book Club via Zoom. The Zoom link will be provided closer to the event.

If you are just joining us - order the book -and/or listen to it on Audible ( I am doing both)

As always, we have 30 slots and a waiting list, too.

If you are on the main list and, for whatever reason, can't attend - please make sure to change your attendance status so those on the waitlist can and migrate into the discussion group.

Inspired reading!

Your host - Cheenu
