Autism Acceptance Virtual Lunch, Hosted by TUC

Autism Acceptance Virtual Lunch, Hosted by TUC

On Wednesday, April 22, join a virtual conversation on Zoom with experts from Touro University California (TUC), Arc-Solano, and the Special Olympics as well as self-advocates to celebrate neurodiversity during Autism Month and learn what resources are available throughout shelter in place.

Experts include Stacy Martinez, Executive Director of The Arc-Solano, Amanda Young, Special Olympics Healthy Athletes Manager, and self-advocates. The event is hosted by TUC student group American Academy of Development Medicine and Dentistry AADMD.

“We’re excited to partner with Arc-Solano and the Special Olympics to provide resources to support the ASD community while maintaining social distancing as part of the response to COVID-19,” said Gianna Brown, AADMD President and DO Candidate for the Class of 2023.

Interested community members can hear from ASD experts and self-advocates online from noon to 1 p.m. Topics of discussion will include autism acceptance and how people can show their support, a discussion on COVID-19’s impact on the developmentally disabled including alternatives for athletes who would like to remain active during shelter in place, and what resources are available for the developmentally disabled and their supporters during shelter in place. There will be time set aside for self-advocates to share the kind of adaptations they’ve used to succeed during this time and for participants to ask questions.

The virtual lunchtime event is free and open to all on Zoom. Participants are encouraged to register in advance at tu.edu/autismacceptance.
