The Surrey School District's first-ever Youth With Autism conference, held May 2, was a huge success.
The event welcomed more than 100 students in Grades 4-7 who are on the autism spectrum to the district's Resource & Education Centre, for a day that included guest speakers and a variety of workshops (including art, drama, comedy, social skills, and tech/coding).
Students also had the opportunity to connect with autistic adults, and form friendships with other youth who are on the spectrum.
