Some of the greatest thinkers and innovators in history have been diagnosed with autism. With more employers encouraging, and even mandating, neurodiverse workplaces, children with autism will have even more opportunities to become the innovators of tomorrow. Even so, facing an autism diagnosis can be overwhelming. We do know that early intervention improves outcomes for autistic children, especially as it relates to their social and emotional skills.

This Talk explores the signs and symptoms of autism and the benefits of neurodiversity; strategies for the autistic child's success; how the family and siblings can best support an autistic child; and local resources, promising innovations, apps, programs such as Early Support Program for Autism, and assistive technologies for kids with autism.
