On January 4th, I had the immense pleasure of sharing my presentation, “Embracing Acquired Neurodivergence,” with the CASY Cultural Autism Studies Online Speaker Series. CASY is the Ethnography Project led by Dr. Dawn Prince-Hughes at Yale University.
My presentation dived into my journey with acquired neurodivergence and challenges with sensory processing as a brain surgery survivor. I also touched upon tools and insights I gained while healing and explained how they helped me understand my neurodivergent children, as well as the many neurodiverse children and families I have worked with over the years.
I’m honored to share a recording of the presentation with you, and I can’t wait to hear your feedback!
In addition, if your #company, #organization, or #educational institution is looking to learn more about the subject, please feel free to reach out to coordinate a meeting!
I’d like to thank Dr. Dawn Prince Hughes and Dr. Roger Jou for granting me this amazing opportunity!
In addition, here’s a bit of info about the CASY Cultural Autism Studies Ethnography Project: An ‘ethnography’ is an exploration of how a group of people express themselves in a cultural way. Autistic people have a growing kind of culture, and each autistic experience is a vital part of it. Join spectrum author Dr. Dawn Prince-Hughes for an exploration of the importance of autistic self-expression and the culture that grows from it.
CASY Sparks membership, activities, and events are free. CASY Sparks is sponsored in part by The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation Adult Autism Research Fund, Connecticut Council on Developmental Disabilities (CTCDD), a generous gift from the Rosen family, and the research of Dr. Roger Jou.
