Autism Queensland's The Girls' Guide to Ruling the Internet is the first program of its kind with a specific focus on teenage girls with autism. It will be delivered over three days during the upcoming school holidays on 1, 2 and 3 October 2019 at the Autism Hub from 11am - 3pm each day.
The program will focus primarily on YouTube, from the technical aspects of channel planning, creation, artwork, filming, editing and adding effects through mobile devices through to growing a YouTube channel and becoming a YouTube personality.
Program Mentor Daisy Van Ghert said some of today's biggest YouTube influencers are girls. "A Girls' Guide in Ruling the Internet will cover how girls are learning and sharing from each other, forming friendships and having fun online," Daisy said.
The program is a part of Autism Queensland's popular Teen Tech Shed and recognises that girls are as engaged in the online world as boys but face unique challenges, particularly for those with autism.
