Transformative. Helpful. Inspirational. Connective. That's how past attendees describe the Living With Autism Workshop, sponsored by Metro Parent and Henry Ford Health System. This day dedicated to unlocking the puzzle of autism is geared at parents and professionals alike, and it features two impactful speakers and expert-led breakout sessions. It's a powerful experience. And, for the 13th annual event, we're aiming to make it more accessible than ever, with prices slashed from $125 in 2019 to only $75 in 2020 – and just $55 if you register in advance.
The dialogue on autism is changing. Far more than a "diagnosis" or "challenge," ASD can be an asset. That's why, in 2020, we're thrilled to present two speakers who capture this change: Barry M. Prizant, Ph.D., CCC-SLP , author of Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism – and Chloe Rothschild, a young adult, self-advocate and author who educates people about autism from her perspective. Stay tuned to this page for more information on breakout sessions and day-of-event details.
Far more than a 'diagnosis' or 'challenge,' autism can be packed with advantages. Barry M. Prizant, Ph.D., CCC-SLP – author of Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism – is at the forefront of those flipping the script on autism.
Chloe Rothschild is a young adult, self-advocate and author who educates people about autism from her perspective. She loves discussing the lesser-known “sense” of feeling and being in touch with the body – often a challenge for those with ASD.
Living With Autism Workshop attendees are able to attend three breakout sessions and may choose from multiple options. Watch here for the complete schedule of topics for 2020, which will be announced closer to the event date. Here are some of the confirmed sessions so far:
