Eric Garcia — “We’re Not Broken – Changing the Autism Conversation: A Discussion About Academic Success.” This presentation will draw on Garcia’s wealth of knowledge navigating education as an autistic person. Garcia will describe resources, supports and strategies that both he and other autistic people have found important for academic success in high school and college. In addition to academic challenges that autistic people may encounter, he will address social challenges as well. He will share insights about his journey as a Latino autistic person and approaches he’s used to succeed both academically and in his career. This event is free and open to the public and will be followed by a book signing. Register here to attend the 2022 Burnett Seminar virtually or in-person.
