This webinar offers autistic individuals, parents, educators and therapy providers an understanding that when autistics are honored for who they are and supported for who they want to be in this world they can truly thrive!
Participants will learn that rather than supporting deficits (as is typical in the field of autism), Judy covers who autistic people are and how they comfortably function, going over key elements of taking in, processing, storing and retrieving information along with autistic thinking style.
This webinar originally took place on Wednesday, February 19th.
In this webinar, attendees will learn about:
- The impact of an autism diagnosis later in life
- Executive function challenges and sensory processing issues and how to overcome them
- Judy Endow’s insightful thoughts on friendship
