District to host first-ever Youth With Autism Conference

Youth With Autism Conference.jpgThe Surrey School District is pleased to host its first-ever Youth With Autism Conference.

The Youth With Autism Conference will welcome students in Grades 4-7 to explore and engage with topics of interest and listen to shared and new experiences. The event will include keynote speaker Michael McCreary (The Aspie Comic), break out sessions, and conclude with a discussion panel.

About 112 students from various Surrey and White Rock schools were chosen to attend by integration support teachers and parents. Registration is now closed.

The goal of the conference is to connect students who have autism with positive role models, recreational opportunities and a positive understanding of autism.

The conference takes place May 2 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Resource and Education Centre (REC), 14123 92 Ave.
