Advance LA 2017 Conference: #CONNECT

Los Angeles, CA - United StatesMay-05-201707:00 am

The Help Group’s 2017 Advance LA Conference # CONNECT, features nationally prominent experts whose research and practice support young people with autism, learning differences and ADHD in their transition to college, the workplace and beyond. Young people with diverse challenges have the same need for connection and belonging as their typical peers, even though their neurodevelopmental differences might keep them from experiencing fulfilling connections intellectually and interpersonally. Our speakers will discuss ways to encourage and guide our young adults as they connect to themselves, to others, and to their academic and vocational pursuits in order to create meaningful and rewarding lives. Our speakers will also address the needs of those who support the young people in their journey. Registration is now open. www.advancela.org
