A resource is only useful if you can find what you are looking for! In response to COVID so many of our activities have gone online. The silver lining to offset the loss of one-to-one real-life contact, is the quality and accessibility of workshops, seminars & videos from knowledgeable, credible sources that are now available. This meeting will direct us toward some resources that are pertinent to us – autistic adults & their families!
We are pleased to have Michelle Garcia Winner & Joanna Nefs speak to us about their resource libraries & how to access them.
