Of the 1.5 million people in the U.S. that have been diagnosed on the autism spectrum, approximately 80 percent are younger than 22. An upcoming conference, Creating a Future for Adults with Autism, will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., September 15, at St. John’s The Evangelist Church, in Naples, to explore the special needs and concerns of these individuals. The event is sponsored by the nonprofit organization “Kneads”, A Fresh Vision for Special Education.
Conference coordinator Debby Lasek says, “In our area, the need for long-term living and support for adults with autism far exceeds the available resources. This conference will help us learn how we can make a change.”
Location: 625 111th Ave. N. For more information, call Lasek at 239-450-6060 or email [email protected].
