An Earthbound Misfit?
Presenter: William McCombie was born and raised in New Zealand and moved to Florida at the age of 11. Although autism was suspected at a young age, William was not officially diagnosed until he was in high school. He was mainstreamed in school and experienced difficulties especially “fitting in” with other kids. William holds multiple college degrees and presently lives independently.
William will give a brief overview of some of his experiences, including the challenges he’s faced, and methods he used to overcome them.
Participants will learn:
1. that there is no “one size fits all” criteria for the autism spectrum
2. ways that being “on the spectrum” can be beneficial
3. coping techniques for independence in today’s society
Video will be posted soon!
