The awareness of autism has exploded in our cultural consciousness in the past decade, but what exactly is autism? Why is it sometimes challenging for people on the spectrum to get along in the “regular” world? How does a person with an atypical brain process things and how can science help people with autism succeed in day-to-day life?

At this Science on Tap, Dr. Ellyn Arwood and Chris Merideth from the University of Portland will examine the most current scientific research about autism and explore how these findings can be used by parents, educators, and adults to promote long-lasting brain growth and social development in children and adults on the autism spectrum.
