Idaho CEC Conference Keynote Announced

SharonLink

Idaho CEC 2015 Conference Keynote Speaker

Dr. Sharon Link

Dr. Sharon Link and her son James T.G. Link are both autistic. James was diagnosed when he was 6 years old with classic autism, and Sharon was just recently diagnosed as an adult with Asperger Disorder, which is classified as an autism disorder according to the revised DSM-V. While Sharon suspected from a young age that James was autistic, sought the best therapies, and then the formal diagnosis from the University of Washington, Sharon struggled quietly with her disorder for a very long time. Sharon’s recent diagnosis has now equipped her to become a better advocate for both her son and herself. Their story is compelling, inspirational, and educational.
