Upcoming Perspective Seminar Focuses on the Benefits of Being Different

 

MORC is pleased to announce our next PERSPECTIVES seminar in partnership with Friendship Circle, entitled, The Benefits of Being Different on February 28th at 7 p.m. at the Farber Center.

 

Listen to nationally renowned Autism advocate, John Elder Robison lead an inspiring and illuminating discussion on ways to look at disability, difference and giftedness and offer a new paradigm for educators, parents and neurodiverse people.

 

Robison grew up with Asperger's Syndrome and was undiagnosed until the age of 40.  He nevertheless lived an incredible life.  A leading voice on autism, he implores audiences to find strengths where others see weaknesses.  Through poignant examples from his own life, Robison shows how traits that crippled him as a child actually facilitated some of his greatest accomplishments as an adult.  He will also reveal why companies should take an active role in hiring the neurodiverse and navigates the benefits and pitfalls for both employer and employee.

 

Robison's books Look Me in the Eye, Be Different, and Raising Cubby are the most widely read accounts of life with Asperger's in the world.  He has also authored or contributed to over 100 Autism related articles and he has served as an invited lecturer and keynote speaker at conferences and organizations all around the world.
