Event Description: Southern Connecticut State University Center of Excellence on Autism Spectrum Disorder will host a conference on planning for adulthood which will consist of panel discussions and presenters on the transition to adulthood and independence. We will bring together service providers to discuss the skills needed to live successfully on your own. There will be a panel discussion with individuals on the spectrum to discuss their experience as they transitioned to adulthood highlighting working and living on their own. The final presenter is Eric Benninghoff who is studying what happens to people with developmental disabilities, like autism, when they become adults in Norway's welfare state. He conducts interview-based research and creates short films throughout Norway and other Nordic countries to better understand and document the challenges and potential of these individuals as they transition from school to the workforce. This event will be hosted virtually on zoom and has a $40 fee. Participants must register ahead here
