Free Parent Workshop: Benefits of a STEM Education

DATES: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join The Help Group’s STEM3 Academy for a free, informative presentation and discussion exploring changing outcomes for young people with social and learning differences.

Hear Dr. Ellis Crasnow, The Help Group’s Director of STEM Academy and STEM Education, speak on how students with social and learning differences can benefit from a STEM-enriched education.

Economists report that the U.S. is poised to experience a severe shortfall of skilled workers to fill some 8.65 million jobs in STEM-related fields. Students with social and learning differences who have a passion or aptitude for STEM can help fill that gap, but how do we help them prepare for that future?

Engage in a lively discussion on the strengths that students with autism spectrum disorder and social/learning differences may have which lend themselves to STEM pursuits. They will also identify which 21st Century jobs are heavily in demand that those on the spectrum may be suited for, as well as what skills, training and education will be most valuable in ensuring success.

Dinner and presentation included; held at the OC STEM Initiative, UC Irvine Campus.
