Would you like to know more about effective ways to welcome and support people with Autism in our communities? Are you interested in ways to support parents and families with autistic children, as well as, strategies to engage and create positive experiences for children with spectrum diagnoses? Do you want to know more about areas of advocacy where disability rights are the most vulnerable right now and how a community can be engaged in this essential work?

Join us for a conversation led by four knowledgeable and experienced individuals:
Rose Sutton - member of The Autistic Society of Northern Virginia
Kris Guin - founder and president of Queerability (an LGBTQ and disability justice organization), advisor on the Panel of People on the Spectrum of Autism with the Autism Society of America
Kristy Schulenberg - trained special education teacher and nursery school teacher at FB Meekins Preschool
Samantha (Sam) Crane - Director of Public Policy at The Autistic Self Advocacy Network
