Topic: College or Work?
Date: Saturday, May 21st at 4:00pm pacific
After high school, many neurodivergent young adults go directly to college. Sometimes that's the right choice, but for other young adults spending time in the work force before college can be a better option.
We'll hear from a guest speaker who is 23-years old and diagnosed with both autism & ADHD. He attended the local university for a year before dropping out and focusing on work. Recently, he has started attending college part-time while continuing to work full-time. He'll share how his experience working shifted his perspective, helped him mature, and has resulted in a more positive college experience this time around.
Topic: Supporting Your Neurodivergent Teenager

Join us to hear from Anneka, who will share information on how to support your teenager!
A little about Anneka:
Anneka was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Generalized Anxiety at the age of 16, and ADHD at the age of 23. She is of Chinese and European heritage and was the one time recipient of a very impulsively chosen Bachelor’s degree. Despite excelling in high school and university, issues with masking, burnout and executive function have provided her with significant challenges outside the structure of secondary education. She currently spends her time sewing, knitting, reading, and working at a job she very definitely did not go to college for.
