Interesting Ways for Everyone to Learn About Autism

The media is full of information about autism that can educate our relatives, our neighbors and ourselves about autism without reading lengthy text books or going to all day conferences. Our keynote presentation will introduce informative and entertaining YouTube videos, TED lectures, poetry, fiction, TV shows and, of course, movies. An annotated list of resources will be provided so no note taking will be required.
