TEDxYorkUSalons talks provide a forum for ideas within the Canadian autism community. In this Salon, four TEDx speakers will partake in discussions that will be put online following the event. After the Salon portion, there will be 3-minute – “lightning” – talks by a dozen researchers in the ASD field who will showcase innovative research related to autism.
Made possible by York University’s ‘Chair in Autism Spectrum Disorders Treatment and Care Research’ research group and TEDxYorkU, the event focuses on innovations for people with autism within their community and in research.
