What Doctors Don't Tell You and Teachers Don't Know: Understanding the World of the so-called 'high functioning' Child on the Spectrum Flyer

This workshop aims to demystify autism, correct misconceptions and help parents understand dozens of common features of Autism that may be affecting the quality of life for their child or teen. The presenters work toward changing understanding of ASD in order to change the way parents approach challenges. Come to this workshop for an informative, entertaining, inspirational glimpse of life through the autism lens.
Note: **Handouts are not provided at this event** Refreshments and snacks will be provided.
