Kids with Autism Don't Have the Social Development Opportunities Enjoyed by Non-autistic Peers

So what happens? They get a good deal of specialized services, but they can't practice with their peers. Then after 10 or more years of isolated interventions, if lucky enough to qualify for them, they enter the world of independence facing dismal unemployment rates.
It is the same thing as sitting on a bench watching others play baseball. Young potential baseball players talk to one another hoping one day to play the game tool. After many years, the potential ball players all seem to have the right answers; so the coach says, "Okay, you are done with training, You can play a real game on your own this Saturday,"
They go onto the field, scarred but willing, and sadly, they
can't do it because they never practiced.
We change this outcome. Come to Southern CT State University, May 9th, 645-830. Hear enthusiasm about this change. Enjoy the presentation by world-renowned speaker who has autism--Stephen Mark Shore, Ed.D.
