Webinar Description

For individuals with developmental disabilities like autism spectrum disorders and their families, accessing community arts, civic, and cultural events can be challenging and at times, feel incredibly overwhelming. The uncertainty of new situations – will they feel overwhelmed, will their child have a melt-down and need to leave as soon as they arrive, will they be judged by other people – can be enough to deter an individual or family from seeking experiences that could be enjoyable and enriching for their child and for their family as a whole.

This webinar series is a two-part series. The first webinar will highlight an overview of neurodiversity, accessibility, and inclusion as well as a focus on autism spectrum disorders and respectfully communicate to and about this population. The second part of the series will include lessons learned and practical applications from Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage and recommendations for actionable first steps to increase accessibility and inclusion at your organization.
