Wake, Lagos, and Slap-Shelton are researching spectrum adults around the world to learn how they are emerging from late-in-life diagnosis [or self-realization] of being on the spectrum. They will share what they are learning and present it within a developmental model of autism based on the book: The Nine Degrees of Autism: A Developmental Model for the Alignment and Reconciliation of Hidden Neurological Conditions by Wylie and Wenn [Routledge,2010]. Spectrum adults from local support groups will share about their own journeys to wholeness.
There will be opportunity for dialog both with the presenters and with spectrum adults. Participants are encouraged to share from their own personal and professional experiences.
