Joel Carver is a Junior at the College of William and Mary and a Neurodiversity advocate. Joel was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome in elementary school and explored his condition in depth during his senior year of high school. Joel will share his personal experience about life as an autistic person and discuss strategies and approaches that worked for him as well as those that did not. While each autistic person is different, it is Joel’s hope that parents and autistic people will hear his stories and be able to use them as a starting point for conversation or parenting techniques to better engage with the autistic people in their lives. This meeting is intended for parents, educators, professionals, and students age 13 and older.
