Description: Join us for a virtual conversation about disability inclusion hosted by Shelly Christensen, MA FAAIDD of Inclusion Innovations and Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer, MA of Whole Community Inclusion.
After Stephen Shore’s remarkable visit to ‘Everyone’s Welcome’ in August, he is returning during Disability Employment Month to explore neurodiversity and employment. We can’t wait! Based on Dr. Shore’s popular program, the 4 A’s of Autism, you will see neurodiversity and employment in a new way!
About Dr. Stephen Shore: Diagnosed with “Atypical Development and strong autistic tendencies” and “too sick” for outpatient treatment Dr. Shore was recommended for institutionalization. Nonspeaking until 4, and with much support from his parents, teachers, wife, and others, Stephen is now a full time professor at Adelphi University and adjunct at NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, focusing on aligning best practice in supporting autistic people to lead fulfilling and productive lives.
In addition to working with children and talking about life on the autism spectrum, Stephen is an internationally renowned educator, consultant and author on lifespan issues pertinent to education, relationships, employment, and self-advocacy. His most recent book combines personal stories and research for promoting success in higher education.
A current board member of Autism Speaks, and the Organization for Autism Research (OAR), president emeritus of the Asperger/Autism Network, and advisory board member of the Autism Society, Dr. Shore also serves on the advisory boards AANE, and other autism related organizations.
