Autism knows no national boundaries, and the understanding of autism is growing in Russia as it is worldwide. AASCEND has received an informal invitation from an autism friend in Russia to make a brief video telling “what people should know about autism”. (Caption translations will be added.) This is a great opportunity to put AASCEND’s (i.e. your) years of first-hand experience about autism to excellent use halfway around the world!
This is also a great opportunity for us to take stock together about how our understanding of autism has changed and grown through the years. Join us at the June 15 meeting as together we explore what we feel is most important to say now about autism—to correct misperceptions, to tell it “like it is”, and to give hope. In a divided world autism can help bring people together!
As always, attendees on the spectrum will offer their experience and perspectives throughout the program.
Who: Adults on the autism spectrum, families, mentors and professionals all welcome. For more information, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
