Discussion regarding COVID-19 Uncertainty
**Zoom Online Peer Meeting**
We Aspies / autistics mainly like routine and dislike change - especially when its been unexpected.
Over the past week, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic in Australia has seemingly gone from "under control" to "all systems go".
Many office workers have been instructed to work from home if possible. University students have classes cancelled or moved to online at the last minute. Parents are all wondering about the school question. ALL of these things have thrown our routines out.
So let's come together and have a general peer discussion - via Zoom online, not in person- to discuss and brainstorm how to best manage our concerns and ensure we find some calm in this situation. This peer meeting is for those 18+.
The Zoom session will be facilitated by:
- Penny Robinson, AV Ambassador (and Lecturer in public health at Monash University)
- Lyndel Kennedy, AV events team
- Tamsin Jowett, AV President
Cost: $5 all tickets for this online meeting. You need to register and pay prior to attending with your registration. Email email@example.com if you need assistance to do this.What is Zoom?
