Breaking Down Stereotypes about Autism

April is Autism Awareness Month, recognized with calls to “Light it up Blue” and decorate with bold-colored puzzle pieces to spread awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorder.  Yet, despite decades of awareness campaigns, widespread stereotypes and myths about ASD are still commonplace.  This presentation aims to dispel many stereotypes while presenting a broader view of what it means to be on the Autism Spectrum.

Heather Eckel is an Autistic Advocate with a passion for educating others about autism.  As both an autistic woman, and mother of autistic children, she has experienced how a lack of understanding impacts the lives of autistic individuals.  Ms. Eckel volunteers her time providing autism education through autistic-led social media groups and on her Facebook page, Autistic Inside and Out.

This is a virtual program presented via Zoom. Registration is required so that we can provide you with the Zoom link 4-48 hours before the scheduled start of the program. Click here to register.
