About the Workshop
Learn about the shift in how autistic support is thought about and implemented. Understand who autistic people are and how they comfortably function, as well as key elements of taking in, processing, storing, and retrieving information along with autistic thinking style. Endow will share numerous examples so autistic individuals, parents, educators, and therapy providers can understand that when autistics are honored for who they are and supported for who they want to be in this world, they can truly thrive! (Note: identity-first language used intentionally as it is the preference of most autistics.)
