Charlottesville, Va. — Autism advocates and lawmakers in Virginia are set to meet Sept. 28 to sit down and discuss the challenges that adults with autism spectrum disorder are facing.

The advocates and lawmakers will be meeting in an activity-filled event, which will feature workshops, presentations, and informal networking sessions.

Among the presenters in the event are the Charlottesville Regional Autism Action Group, representatives from the Commonwealth Autism, Virginia Microboard Association, the Virginia Institute of Autism, and the Region Ten Community Services Board.

The event is expected to shine light on the hurdles adults with autism have to overcome.

In a news release, Mary Anna Dunn of CRAAG told:

“We’re incredibly excited to be able to bring together policymakers and advocates to discuss the hurdles adults with autism contend with.

“Virginia’s national ranking for disability services recently moved up from 49th to 41st. We can do a lot better than that.”
