Are You Interested in Learning More About Autism? Do You Have a Child With Autism Who Is Transitioning to College?
The Neurodiversity Initiative at William & Mary is offering a two day course in DC!
Open to W&M alums, students, and the general public!
Day 1: students will learn about the concept of neurodiversity, and discuss how brain differences -- primarily autism spectrum conditions -- shape the ways in which neurodiverse people process information, think about themselves and others, manage their emotions, and navigate romantic and professional relationships.
Day 2: students will learn about skills that should be developed to be more prepared for the transition to higher education.
The workshop will be especially useful for:
- Parents of neurodiverse children
- K-12 and higher education professionals
- Mental health professionals
- Human resource professionals
- Those who want to learn more about neurodiversity
