Our first speaker, Jad Brake, PhD Candidate, Department of Anthropology, UBC, described his research on the communicative and sensory challenges that some ASD individuals experience that impede them in forming relationships.

Shadi has 10 years of experience serving the autistic community, 3 at CAN, working on the Youth and Young Adult programs. She spoke on the benefits of participating in community-based leisure/recreation, and how to find those activities that fit one’s interests, time, budget & location.
