What to do at 22?

 Autism:  Coming of Age
Film Screening and Discussion 
Who:  Parents, Self-Advocates, Teachers and other community Autism advocates
What:  Film Screening and Discussion
Utah Education Network (UEN) and the Autism Council of Utah (ACU) have partnered, in part, with the Utah Parent Center serving families in the Davis School District, to bring this important film to our community.  Following the film, parents and advocates will share their experiences with coming of age decisions.
MassMutual sponsored this documentary which was produced by public television station WGBY (Springfield, MA) to help raise awareness of the challenges faced by individuals with autism and their families as their students “age out” of the public education system.    
Topics addressed in the film include:
·        Financial well-being
·        Quality of life
·        Employment
·        Housing needs
·        Education
·        Health
·        The child’s longevity
