Learning, Loving, Living: A Fireside Chat with Lindsey Nebeker and David Hamrick

Many individuals on the autism spectrum often report ongoing and sometimes exhausting challenges associated with social communication and interaction. What can we learn from these challenges, and how can we as parents, professionals, community members, and employers better teach, support, and work with individuals on the autism spectrum?
Join us for a special session with Lindsey Nebeker and David Hamrick – a young couple featured in the recent documentary, Autism in Love. We'll talk with Dave and Lindsey about their personal journey – as individuals and as a recently married couple – focusing on their experiences and accomplishments in school through adolescence and into adulthood. We'll also watch the documentary Autism in Love and continue an enlightening and engaging conversation with David and Lindsey after the film.
