I Have Autism. Let's Talk!

The presenter has autism. You will meet him and enter his world during this session. You will follow his journey through the school system — where there were devastating failures and some remarkable successes. The presenter will, with raw transparency, explain what life on the spectrum is like, and how the education system can impact life. Enter the world of autism & mental health via dynamic spoken word poetry & engage in a two-way conversation exploring how to improve special education.
