April 6th Event - Details

"We Thought You'd Never Ask: Voices from the Spectrum"

In this discussion, Dr. Kluth explores the gap between the dominant discourse in Autism and the stories of people on the spectrum themselves. She will share excerpts from her documentary film on the voices of people with Autism and discuss what the messages from people with Autism and Asperger Syndrome mean for our daily work in schools and communities. Childcare (1yr and older) will be provided by Sauk Valley Community College.

Light refreshments will be provided.

* If you need 1.5 hours of Continuing Education credits for attending this event, there will be a charge of $10.00 per person.
