Does your family include a child who has Autism?
Do you know how autism inspires? Let us count the ways together!
This is an invitation for families to attend at no cost to hear from adults with autism. Autism is still misunderstood and deeply stigmatized. As caregivers, we face judgement and challenges most families do not, and the opportunity to experience these real discussions are very limited.
Adam Schwartz, comedian
Matthew Boux, youth, and creator of Matthew’s Autism Journey
Baden Gaeke Franz, self advocate
What will speakers discuss?
Their experience as a child, including knowing how much parents love and cared for them, and if they could not speak, still knowing and understanding things. We are more similar than we are different, as families, and as people in general. Things will be change, have ups and downs, and will ultimately be okay.
