An international speaker and noted author on a variety of autism-related topics will hold a public presentation on April 27 at 7 p.m. in the Shattuck Middle School Auditorium in Neenah.
Judy Endow, who has autism herself and has written eight books and numerous articles about autism, will give a free presentation titled “Aspects of Autism Translated,” followed by a question and answer session. The program is possible through a Neenah Joint School District mini-grant from the Department of Public Instruction (DPI).
The presentation takes the audience on an intensely personal journey through her life where many aspects of autism are delved into juxtaposing her personal, parenting and professional experiences of autism. It provides a “backstage pass” into autism that is priceless for educators, parents and individuals on the autism spectrum.
Endow lives in Madison and is a board member for both the Autism Society of America Wisconsin Chapter and the Autism National Committee. She has three sons, including one on the autism spectrum. She works with the Common Threads Family Resource Center in McFarland and is part of the DPI statewide autism training team.
