The Forgotten Population: The Neurodiverse

Education is the passport to opportunity, but we are failing our neurodiverse. What can we do to empower this population as they age out of the system? The brain continues to develop through the age of 25, yet we stop supporting these young adults at 21. It is during these critical years that we have an opportunity to support the development of job skills which are so important to their overall wellbeing and the wellbeing of the entire family. Presented by an expert on the neurodiverse.
