The institute for Community Inclusion: employment, education, community life and health care


Register for Webinar #4: healthcare

Join us for this webinar series, in which we explore ways that people on the spectrum have overcome challenges to thrive in health care, community life, and more. Learn more about the series.

The next event, on May 22 at 2:00 PM, is the fourth in the series, which will engage experts in the field of autism, some of whom are on the spectrum themselves, or have children who are on the spectrum. This discussion will focus on the topic of healthcare. Our speakers will include Dr. Kerim Munir, Director of Psychiatry at the Institute for Community Inclusion and Boston Children’s Hospital, as well as a panel of parents and their children who have an autism diagnosis.
