Seminar Title: Growing Up With Autism

Joe’s presentation is about his journey with autism, from school to now. He talks about what strategies school had used for certain behaviours, and if they didn’t work, then he explains why not. There are lots of insights about how a person with autism ‘works’. Joe also discusses how he was able to independently travel to college and how he didn’t want to use the services of the special needs department, preferring to be the same as everyone else.

Joe Harvey will be speaking in the following theatres:
