Expanding the Dialogue on Autism: Reflections on Research & Real Life in Employment - 3/22/2018

This is the second event in a series of online talks which will engage experts in the field of autism, some of whom are on the spectrum themselves. The goal is to look at ways that people on the spectrum are shattering outdated expectations about their potential, their success, and their engagement in education, employment, healthcare, and community life.

This discussion will focus on the topic of employment. Our speakers will include:
-John Butterworth, Ph.D., Director of Employment Systems Change and Evaluation at Institute for Community Inclusion
-Lori Golden, EY Abilities Strategy Leader
-Alan Kurtz, Ph.D., Coordinator of Education and Autism at the Center for Community Inclusion and Disability Studies, University of Maine
-Scott Michael Robertson, Ph.D., Policy Advisor, Youth Policy Team, at Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP)
-Paul Wehman, Ph.D., Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Director, Virginia Commonwealth University RRTC
