Listening to Autism with Susan Senator

In celebration of Brookline Autism Acceptance Day, the Brookline SEPAC presents an evening with Susan Senator to discuss her insights and creative strategies for connecting and communicating with autistic people to promote their full social, economic and political participation in society and in promoting equality, equity and inclusion.  Susan is an author, blogger, journalist, and activist who lives in Brookline. She has published op-ed pieces, commentaries, articles, and essays since 1997 on parenting and autism. She is a former member of the Brookline School Committee and chair of the Brookline SEPAC. She is the author of three books and a novel, all drawn from her personal experiences as a mom with an autistic child. Her experiences have run the gamut — an entire spectrum’s worth of changes in viewpoint.
