This year, we were excited to host seven speakers who are self-advocates on the autism spectrum. We learned so much from these bright and talented speakers.
- A panel of librarians (Gyasi Burks-Abbott; Stephanie Diorio; Charlie Remy; and Erin Miller) who addressed questions such as, how they could promote positive change in a library or in the field of librarianship;
- Morénike Giwa Onaiwu, who presented on living at the intersection of being black, female and autistic;
- Kerry Magro, author, national speaker, movie consultant and non-profit founder, spoke about his journey to adulthood on the spectrum; and
- Alyssa Huber, independent filmmaker showed her film, Through Our Eyes: Living with Asperger’s, followed by a Q & A.
All presentations will be available on the Targeting Autism YouTube Channel.
