Join xMinds for an evening with Julia Bascom, the leading voice in the Autistic self-advocacy movement, which promotes the message “nothing about us without us.” Ms. Bascom will underscore the importance of supporting neurodiversity at all levels, and the importance of self-advocacy for both individual success and moving society forward to be more inclusive of neurodivergent people. Ms. Bascom will also address how parents can help their children develop self-advocacy skills.
This event is suitable for parents, educators, professionals, and students who have questions about their diagnosis. Please submit your questions in advance when you register.
Julia Bascom, Executive Director, Autistic Self Advocacy Network
