This free event is the last of a three-part lecture series — Autism Spectrum Disorders Across the Lifespan. This series gets right to the heart of the most pressing questions being asked about autism today, and what each of these issues looks like for children, adolescents, and adults. While the content is especially relevant for families, we encourage educators, pediatricians, early intervention specialists, educational advocates, and child psychologists to also attend.
