“This is the fifth installment of the Autism Parenting Summit, and every time, we are overwhelmed by the positive feedback,” says Mark Blakey, Founder of Autism Parenting Magazine.
“We’re confident families across the globe will find something within the schedule to help and support them.”
Autism Parenting Magazine Editor Joshua Carstens agrees with Blakey. “We are very proud of this strong line-up. In a world often geared towards neurotypicality, it is heartwarming to see this virtual event highlighting the strengths of the autism community.”
Blakey says they want the Autism Parenting Summit accessible to as many people as possible.
“All our videos are free for 24 hours after their release. We encourage parents and professionals in the autism field to visit the website as soon as possible to get their free pass and reserve their places.”
