Course description

PRESENTERS

Alan Abramowitz, Executive Director of the Florida Guardian ad Litem Program

Kelly Swartz, Director of Legal Advocacy of the Florida Guardian ad Litem Program 


Steve Silberman, Award winning, internationally renowned science writer

A deep look at the hidden history of autism and the promise of a future in which everyone is given the support they need to reach their maximum potential. 
Steve Silberman is an award-winning investigative journalist who has written for Wired, the New Yorker, Time and Nature. His book NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity, was named one of the best books of 2015 by The New York Times, The Economist, Financial Times, and The Guardian. It was the first science book to win the Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction and has also won a California Book Award and a Books for a Better Life Award. 
Silberman upends conventional thinking about autism and suggests a broader model for understanding people who think differently. Going back to the earliest days of autism research and chronicling the brave and lonely journey of autistic people and their families through the decades, Silberman provides long-sought solutions to the autism puzzle, while mapping out a path for our society toward a more humane world in which people with learning differences and those who love them have access to the resources they need to live happier, healthier, more secure, and more meaningful lives.

I am a BIA and I have been frustrated by the services offered for autistic children. It's good to know there is not only a network but a groundswell to help these children.
