Autism does not end with childhood, it is lifelong. Most publicly funded services end for autistics when they reach the age of 18. With over 5.4 million autistic adults in the US, it’s time we have a platform to discuss this topic of adult autism.
Thanks to their generous sponsorship, The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation for Adult Autism Breakthrough Summit will be held on April 18, 2023. A diverse array of panelists will provide insights in areas including but not limited to employment, housing, postsecondary and support systems including guardianship.
Autism is characterized by social and communication challenges and in some instances accompanied by co-occurring conditions. In the U.S. 1 in 44 are diagnosed with boys being diagnosed 4 times as often as girls. This means that no matter if you have a child with autism, a family member on the spectrum, or know of someone with autism, you will know of someone with autism in your lifetime making awareness events like this only that much more imperative. Autism is also lifelong with over 5.4 million autistic adults in the U.S.
This event spearhead by Dr. Kerry Magro a 35-year-old internationally known speaker on the autism spectrum who has spoken at over 1150 events worldwide in the past 12 years. Kerry hopes to bring in a personal perspective to highlight the significance of this topic.
