PBS’ This Emotional Life and Autism Speaks Present: “Growing Up With Autism”

TUNE IN – “Growing Up with Autism” webinar
Tuesday, April 27, 1-2 p.m. EDT

Join a panel of scientists, parents, and individuals with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to learn what it is like “Growing Up with Autism.” Dr. Geraldine Dawson, Ph.D, the Chief Science Officer at Autism Speaks and Research Professor at UNC Chapel Hill will lead a discussion with  Connie Kasari, Ph.D. (UCLA), Holly Robinson Peete, and John Elder Robison, to address the challenges that face individuals with an ASD and their families as they are initially diagnosed, navigate peer interactions and age out of services as they enter adulthood.

The panelists will also focus on the different needs and abilities individuals with an ASD have in the hope of generating acceptance and support in the community.  This poignant webinar will combine professional experts with personal experience to offer unique insights and perspectives that will be valuable to all who are touched by this increasingly common spectrum of neurodevelopmental disorders.

    I hope to hear how we can view it at a later time. I will be at work but would have loved to watch this. I love Holly and enjoy watching her on Celebrity Apprentice. We were just recently diagnosed with our son and the paperwork to get assistance for therapy, insurance issues and exclusions, the school… it’s very overwhelming.
