Putting Local Autism Support Within Reach

AutismArt-PageArt

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.

Autism: A Uniquely Human Experience

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.

A Better ‘Sense’ of ASD

Presented by Chloe Rothschild

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.
