How “Disabled” Youth with Autism Enabled our Workplace

Event Date: September 12, 2017

Dr. Georgiades discussed how working alongside students with autism has forever changed the way he thinks as a researcher, as an educator, as a father, and as a citizen. He shared some ideas on how we can refine our education, healthcare, and vocational systems to create opportunities for individuals with autism to access the necessary supports and services so they can lead fulfilling lives and make their own unique and much-needed contributions to Society.

“Learning more about the MACart team has given me hope about my son’s future and the possibilities for healthcare professionals to be able to contribute to the services provided for adults on the spectrum.”

“A very well done event that was informative and a good group of people engaged on topic.”

“This was an eloquent overview of the enormous gap in services for helping those with ASD to transition from school to the workplace.”

“Great to have speakers from various faculties with experts in various fields at our fingertips.”

“Thank you for an informative afternoon.”
