In place of the usual October meeting, AASCEND invites (and strongly encourages) its members to join in the FREE online Stanford Neurodiversity Summit, organized and directed by AASCEND board member Dr. Lawrence Fung, with participation from a large array of autistic adults and autism professionals. The theme of the Summit is “Scaling Up the Neurodiversity at Work Initiative“. This conference will bring together neurodivergent individuals, employers, service agencies, educators and students, parents, and professionals from all areas of the field. It may come to be considered an historic event so you won’t want to miss it. There are multiple sessions on many different topics, presented over the course of five days. You can attend one or all of them! Program information here — and most importantly, register HERE. (Don’t worry if it says Late Registration or Sales Ended: It’s still free and available to the last day of the conference. A single registration covers all days of the conference.)
Who: Adults on the autism spectrum, families, mentors and professionals all welcome. For more information, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
When: Oct 17 – 21
Where: Online via Zoom. Register with link above.
