FOCUS Alternative Learning Center is proud to present their panel of experts. They are articulate, brilliant, left of center and very open and honest about their journey with their disorders. Hear firsthand about their experiences and how they impacted their lives at home, school, and in the community. They want to let you know that they have suffered, but they have not given up and have grown to accept and embrace their “peculiarities” and channel them into something useful, without changing “who” they are. These kids are amazing and their willingness to share their experiences to help others have hope and change their lives is inspirational! Learn what strategies have helped them become the successful people they are today.
Sponsored by the Parent Support Group at NCCC, and LACASA (Litchfield County Autism Spectrum Association), and NCCC Division of Continuing Education.
