Back by popular demand, the NAA-NY Metro Chapter is hosting its fourth annual Young Adults Panel. Our theme this year is: It Takes a Village, which will focus on the individuals and the roles that some of their supportive people (e.g., parent, job coach, mentor, etc.) play in promoting their development and independence as a young adult.   Join us for their inspiring presentations and an informal discussion with young adults with ASD.  In discussing the roles of their supportive people, the panelists will touch on topics of interest including: housing, work, relationships, family support, and goals, among others.  Time will be available for questions from the audience.
