5 Must-See Sessions from Living with Autism Workshop 2023

In our latest Living with Autism Workshop event, attendees loved facts and personal stories.

When a child is diagnosed with autism, the first place to turn is the experts for the facts. But often equally important is finding people who completely understand what you are facing to provide vital emotional support.

At our most recent Living With Autism Workshop, the three full days of sessions offered a mix of personal stories and facts that every parent needs.

Wondering what sessions people love the most? Here are the top five most-viewed sessions so far:
