Are You Interested in Learning More About Autism?
Do You Have a Child With Autism Who Is Transitioning to College?
The Neurodiversity Initiative at the College of William & Mary is offering a two day course in DC!
Saturday, June 1 -- "Neurodiversity 101"
Sunday, June 2 -- "Neurodiversity and Education Settings: Transitions to College"
Open to W&M alums, students, and the general public!
Day 1 students will learn about the concept of neurodiversity, and discuss how brain differences -- primarily autism spectrum conditions -- shape the ways in which neurodiverse people process information, think about themselves and others, manage their emotions, and navigate romantic and professional relationships.
Day 2 students will learn about skills that should be developed to be more prepared for the transition to higher education.
The workshop will be especially useful for:
- Parents of neurodiverse children
- K-12 and higher education professionals
- Mental health professionals
- Human resource professionals
- Those who want to learn more about neurodiversity
