A reminder that this weekend, GRASP is hosting "Persons on the Autism Spectrum in Their Communities of Faith," a panel discussion about how our folks feel their behavioral differences are accepted or rejected by their respective congregations. Practicing spectrumites will share their experiences this Sunday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
Dr. Irmi Jacqueline Ozer, Esq. (Bahai)
Henry Clarke (Christian)
Sybelle Silverpheonix (Wiccan)
Jacob Haigh (Jewish)
Perry Hoffman (Catholic)
Vincent Powel (Buddhist)
GRASP Executive Director, Michael John Carley, will moderate.
