Frist Center hosting first-ever ‘Autistics’ Roundtable’ webinar
On Wednesday, June 3rd from 1-2 p.m., the Frist Center for Autism and Innovation will host the first of its new monthly webinar series. The series is being called “Autistics’ Roundtable,” and each week it will feature autistic voices among the panelists, presenters and moderator.
The debut installment will address how the challenges of COVID-19 quarantine mirror the experience of being autistic. Researcher and family member advocate T A McDonald will give a 15-minute talk, followed by a question and answer session with both autistic and neurotypical panelists.
The moderator will be Frist Center communications coordinator Claire Barnett, and this month’s panelists are Frist Center associate director Dr. Dave Caudel, former Frist Center intern Alex Lithgow, and Vanderbilt Autism & Neurodiversity Alliance Vice President Emery Hall.
The webinar will be taking place this coming Wednesday, June 3rd, from 1-2pm at this Zoom meeting link: https://vanderbilt.zoom.us/j/99215636278
