Cancellations made within 24 hours prior to the start of the training will be charged the full registration fee.
Much of the current clinical and scholarly information around autism is deficit-based and limited and some of it is now known to be completely inaccurate. The result is disconnect from the actual experience of being autistic which contributes to misinformation, misguided support, and unintentional harm. Bring your knowledge up-to-date based on the past 15 years of the neurodiversity movement, which is largely informed by autistic scholars and the autistic experience. Understand the autistic brain and how to be an ally and best support autistic people. When we know better, we do better!
