More Details

Understanding autism: How do we identify opportunities for individuals, families and the community?

Join us on Wednesday, Jan. 30, for our 76th Public Square, an in-depth discussion about autism. After a recent Richmond Times-Dispatch editorial provoked a range of comments, we partnered with the Autism Society Central Virginia to help us broaden the conversation and to share more information about this topic.

At the Public Square, we’ll hear from people whose professional and family experiences can help our community learn more about autism. As always, we want to hear from you, too. Our opening panel is:

  • Dr. M. Taruj Ali, Medical Director, Pulmonary Associates of Richmond Sleep Clinics; and parent to a child with autism

  • Shantell Davis, LPN, Bon Secours and VCU Children’s Hospital; and parent to a child with autism

  • Hallie Hovey-Murray, Self-Advocate; Law student at William & Mary; President, One in 68 Foundation

  • Heidi Lawyer, Executive Director, Virginia Board for People with Disabilities; and parent to an adult with autism

  • Dr. Paul Wehman, Director of the Autism Center for Excellence and Director of the VCU Rehabilitation Research and Training Center

RTD Public Square is free to attend, but registration is required. Registered attendees will be seated on a first-come, first-seated basis. Registration does not guarantee a seat at the event. Please arrive early in order to be seated for this event.

Parking will be available in the Richmond Times-Dispatch parking deck.
