About this event

Autism is a developmental disorder characterized by difficulties with social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behavior. It is believed to have affected more than 70 million people around the world as of 2017.

In the past years, persons with Autism have managed to break all stereotypes regarding their disability and currently we have all over the world numerous success stories about employees and entrepreneurs with Autism.

Moreover, many studies have proved that the inclusion of persons with Autism, whether in the workplace or the marketplace, widely benefits businesses and societies.

In our FireSide Chat Event with Patricia Falcetta, the founder and director of Social Living Solutions, and creator of the Family Joy Model, we will explore Autism awareness in business; including: how to recruit and include employees with Autism, how to cultivate a supporting working environment, and how Entrepreneurs with Autism can establish and lead their own businesses.

So, mark your calendars for the 28th of April and get to explore with us the magnificent world of Autism in Business.

I support families to move away from stress, overwhelm, anxiety and worry to relief, happiness, better family balance and joy.
