Many people on the autism spectrum ask, "Why so often won't my body do what my brain wants or does what my brain doesn't want?" Friday's full-day workshop responds to these two very important questions.

Friday evening, a performance will explore a relationship in which one person experiences autism and the other does not.

On Saturday, all but one of the presentations and panels have been developed by people on the spectrum. You will learn about autism and Asperger syndrome from people who "walk the walk."

We want this conference to be as comfortable as possible for people on the autism spectrum. All food events will include a gluten-free, casein-free option. There will be a quiet room with natural lighting, and all presentation spaces will have incandescent rather than fluorescent lighting.

CEUs are available for Michigan teachers and social workers.
