How to Help Bright Kids with Autism Cope During Challenging Times

How to Help Bright Kids with Autism Cope During Challenging Times

Free Webinar: MAY 13, 2020 at 10AM Pacific

If things feel challenging at home, without the typical supports in place during COVID-19, you're not alone. Navigating these uncertain times, with bright kids on the spectrum, can present unique challenges. 

That's why we're organizing this very special opportunity to pose your questions to Dr. Barry Prizant, leading autism expert and author of Uniquely Human.

Once you register for the free 60 minute webinar, you'll be able to submit your burning question for Dr. Prizant. We look forward to seeing you there!

Please note: This webinar will focus on gifted, 'twice exceptional (2e)' kids with autism. Some of the strategies will also be relevant to kids with a wider range of abilities.
