An Aspie, mother of three Asperkids, bestselling author of the Asperkids series, teacher, and social worker, whatever your connection to the spectrum might be….it’s one she shares. And understands. With her trademark wit, cheek, and “well, now, that makes sense” explanations everyone can understand, Jennifer speaks from the heart.
Jennifer's opening talk, “Relentless Possibility (and a Little Bit of Caffeine)” is foundational. Smart ideas spoken lainly in ways that challenge veteran professionals and give real hope to families just beginning their spectrum journeys. It’s “the need to knows” everyone needs to really understand: the “evil nemesis” that is anxiety. The real effects of sensory stuff. The secret power of special interests. “Obstacle illusions,” learning detours, kindness, and — in “all-caps,” RESPECT.
Next, Jennifer shows us how to shake up our parenting, our teaching, and our plans with NON-LAME FUN - spectrum style! Teach flexible thinking by dissolving eggshells. Teach perspective by making mosaics, optical illusions, chemical density experiments or smart phone scavenger hunts. This talk is bursting with go-to ideas for creative, concrete solutions that audiences can use the very next day. It’s play. With purpose. And tattooed bananas.
