Save the date for Honestly Autism Day 2020!
Honestly Autism Day is a day devoted to understanding autism and is presented by the Partnership Project, which is a collaboration between the Autism Society of Baltimore-Chesapeake, the Baltimore County Public Schools’ Office of Special Education, and the Department of Special Education at Towson University. Parents, family members, professionals and people with autism come together to listen, ask questions and learn from each other. Experienced speakers share their knowledge of all sorts of topics related
to autism, and individuals with autism give open and honest insight into their lives on the autism spectrum. It is a positive, uplifting day filled with revelations and shared ideas.
