Living with Autism Workshop

April 5 @ 7:30 am - 4:30 pm

$85 - $155

Experts, resources, networking: A day of insights and inspiration


For anyone who loves or cares for someone with autism the area’s premier autism workshop can be invaluable for its insights, inspiration and opportunity to network.

Do you have a boy entering puberty? Frank Campagna, the Autism Daddy, can tell you all about what to expect. He’s one of two keynote speakers, talking about “Things No One Ever Told Me About After My Kid Was Diagnosed with Autism.”

Anita Lesko, a motivational speaker and nurse anesthetist who was diagnosed at age 50 with Asperger’s Syndrome, is the second keynote. She’ll talk about visualization — and “Rewiring Your Brain for Success.”

Attendees also will have the opportunity to choose from numerous expert-led breakout sessions, and the chance to network with other attendees during breakfast and lunch (both included in the price of admission.)
