The Autism Revolution: A Uniquely Human Experience
Dr. Barry Prizant

There are many misconceptions about autism and the experience of autistic people. In this presentation, myths surrounding 1) behaviors observed in autism, 2) the view of autism as a tragedy and 3) the belief that autism is only experienced by the individual with the ASD diagnosis will be challenged and a paradigm-shifting perspective will be offered.
