Autism Has No Look: Putting A Spotlight On The Spectrum
Dr. Kerry Magro, award-winning autistic professional speaker, best-selling author & autism consultant
“You don’t look like you have autism” is something Kerry has heard for the past two decades. As a child Kerry was nonverbal and today as an autistic adult is a professional speaker who has what some would say an ‘invisible disability.’ In this presentation, you will hear a first-person account of what helped him, from early intervention to his road to adulthood. Case studies will be shared to highlight the uniqueness of each individual who has autism. Time will be left at the end for Q&A.
Hosted in partnership with the South Brunswick Human Relations Commission
April is World Autism Month, dedicated to increasing awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorder
