ONLINE Autism: From Social Awkwardness to Social Creativity

  • October 21, 2020

  • Online, 2e Center for Research and Professional Development

The Bridges 2e Center for Research and Professional Development is delighted to bring you Critical Conversations about Cognitive Diversity with Scott Barry Kaufman, a monthly webcast featuring in-depth conversations with the top minds in gifted and twice-exceptional education. Dr. Kaufman, the director of research at the 2e Center, is a prominent voice in the neurodiversity movement and has published broadly about intelligence and creativity, including his books Ungifted and Wired to Create. His most recent book Transcend reconceives Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs as a framework to drive self-discovery and actualization.

Our October episode will feature Dr. Matthew Lerner. Matt Lerner is an associate professor of psychology at Stony Brook University. His research focuses on understanding emergence and “real world” implications of social problems in children and adolescents, particularly those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). He also studies the development, evaluation, and dissemination of novel, evidence-based approaches for ameliorating those problems.

This series is produced by Bridges 2e Media, which publishes 2eNews.com and Variations2e magazine.
