Autism Lecture: "Different, Not Less: NeuroTribes and the Future of Neurodiversity"

Here's another event you don't want to miss!
Family Action Network is hosting Steve Silberman, the author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity, which was recently awarded the 2015 Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction.

I haven't read the book yet, but the advance reading copy is loaded on my Kindle and calling out to me. According to Mr. Silberman's publisher, Neurotribes is "a groundbreaking book that upends conventional thinking about autism and suggests a broader model for acceptance, understanding, and full participation in society for people who think differently." Does it call to you, too?

Mr. Silberman's upcoming lecture entitled, "Different, Not Less: NeuroTribes and the Future of Neurodiversity" will take place on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, 7:00 PM at New Trier High School, Northfield Campus - Cornog Auditorium (7 Happ Rd. Northfield, Illinois 60093).

The presentation is sponsored by the Center for Independent Futures and is free and open to the public - no tickets required. Suitable for ages 12+
