The National Institute of Mental Health and Office of Autism Research Coordination are pleased to invite you to attend a special lecture to recognize National Autism Awareness Month. In his talk, Pulitzer prize-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author Ron Suskind will discuss his family’s 20 years of experimentation with his autistic son’s powerful affinity for animated movies, mostly from Disney, as a tool to open new pathways of communication and social connection. Based on his experience, he poses provocative questions about how the features of autism might be turned from challenges into strengths to help those on the spectrum achieve their full potential.
