New ICI Series Expands Discussion of Autism

A new series of online conversations, hosted by the ICI, aims to move the conversation forward about full inclusion for people on the autism spectrum.

Titled “Expanding the Dialogue on Autism: Reflections on Research & Real Life,” the series of online talks will engage experts in the field of autism, some of whom are on the spectrum themselves. The goal is to look at ways that people on the spectrum are shattering outdated expectations about their potential, their success, and their engagement in education, employment, healthcare, and community life.

The first session is Wed. March 7 at 2PM Eastern, and the theme is education. Register here!

Panelists include:

  • Maria Paiewonsky, Program Coordinator and Transition Specialist, ICI
  • Ned Pavlak, Student, Holyoke Community College
  • Julia Landau, Director, Mass Advocates for Children
  • Stephen Shore, Professor, Advocate, and Author
