Mental health and wellness is important for all people. To support mental health and wellness for people with an autism diagnosis, it is important to understand their particular style of thinking and the way their brain handles information along with the impact of both environmental and other types of trauma. This conversation will introduce people to a 3-part series available from Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin. We will be joined by Judy Endow and Sharon Hammer. Judy Endow, LCSW, author and international speaker on a variety of autism-related topics, has written numerous articles and books, including award winners: Learning the Hidden Curriculum: The Odyssey of One Autistic Adult and Paper Words and Discovering and Living with My Autism. Sharon Hammer, MS, LPC is a Mental Health and Educational Consultant and a Licensed Professional Counselor. She has over 20-years of experience working with children and individuals on the autism spectrum and their families. Sharon is a partner at Imagine a Child’s Capacity.
