presented by Judy Endow, MSW, LCSW
December 7, 2017

8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

Parents, caregivers, educators, professionals, and individuals with autism are invited to join autism expert Judy Endow as she shares personal stories highlighting three challenge areas related to her own autism: 1. sensory differences; 2. not always understanding the hidden curriculum in social situations; 3. when others think of her as “less than” because they do not understand autism.

Learn from Endow’s experiences and obtain practical strategies for supporting youth and adults with autism, encouraging them to be the best versions of themselves and most available for learning and life.

Putting Endow’s information into practice may be your loved one’s or student with autism’s ticket forward to placement in more inclusive community environment and educational settings.

Endow also will screen The Power of Words: How we talk about people with autism spectrum disorders matters! during the workshop.
