The session, considered to be the first-ever YouTuber panel on autism and neurodiversity in the UK, will “discuss issues around autism awareness online, and what it’s like being an autistic content creator in a neurotypical online space”.
Speaking to TenEighty, Connor said: “We celebrate differences online and that’s why it’s so important to have panels like this.
“There is a massive rise of neurodiverse people finding comfort in being able to watch and connect with others like them online. Likewise, people like myself can finally express ourselves and how our condition affects us.
“It’s great for neurotypical people to be able to hear our point of view.”
The panel will take place on the Studio stage from 2pm to 2:45pm.
Tickets are available online on the convention’s official website.
