Limited Capacity seats available

April was Autism Awareness Month and, while it's a good idea to remind people about awareness for autism, few need reminding. Given the significant number of individuals impacted by ASD (current diagnosis rates are up nearly 300% and expected to increase by 1,292% by 2020 - according to the CDC), one would think we could  do a much better job of helping autistic individuals gain employment. The sad truth, though, is we don't. People with autism are untapped reservoir of talent, and adults with autism bring special talents to the workplace. Join this panel conversation and discover why thinking differently about autism in the workplace is something that you should embrace for your creative and innovative pursuits.

Abril fue el Mes de Concientización sobre el Autismo y, si bien es una buena idea recordarle a las personas tomar conciencia del autismo, pocos necesitaron recordarlo. Dado el número significativo de individuos afectados por autismo (las tasas de diagnóstico actuales han aumentado casi un 300% y se espera que aumenten en un 1,292% para el 2020, según la CDC), uno pensaría que podríamos & nbsp; hacer un trabajo mucho mejor ayudando a las personas autistas obtener empleo. La triste verdad, sin embargo, es que no lo hacemos. Las personas con autismo son reservorios de talento sin explotar, y los adultos con autismo aportan talentos especiales en sus respectivos trabajos. Únase a esta presentación enfocada en conversación y descubra por qué pensar de manera diferente acerca del autismo en el campo laboral es algo que debería considerar en su empresa.
