Please read Kassiane’s full account of the unfortunate events which occurred at the Autcom conference in Manchester, NH.
My very dear friend Kassiane, like my daughter Evie and best friend Sharon daVanport, have photosensitive epilepsy. Being a photosensitive epileptic means that flashing and/or strobing can trigger a seizure. Seizures can and do kill people.
Prior to attending the Autcom conference, Kassiane expressed concern that Autcom had not done its due diligence in safeguarding Kassiane and other photosensitive epileptics from the potentially life threatening effects of these very real seizure triggers–although they’d quite literally had years to do so following a past Autcom event where Kassiane was subjected to a board member willfully following her around using flash photography. I exchanged several emails with Autcom board members in effort to assure no more malfeasance.
