CT Writers Night: Bryan Donahue, "On Borrowed Time: How I Built a Life While Beating Death" & Kathleen Koenig, "Practical Social Skills for Autism Spectrum Disorders"
Join us for our monthly CT Writers Night. Talented rising authors from our home state will read from and discuss their work.
Life... Live it before you leave it.
Bryan Donahue was a third-generation Marine in optimal health. A diagnosis of a rare liver disease tore his life apart. On Borrowed Time chronicles Bryan's inspiring saga, from light-hearted, funny stories about a stubborn kid growing up in Connecticut, his poignant love story with the woman he would eventually marry, the devastating reality of a grim future, and on to the ultimate gift of life. Through it all, a simple, yet powerful concept sustains Bryan and ultimately leaves him victorious: The power of positive thought.
How do we help a child or teen with an autism spectrum disorder lead a life of full engagement with their family and community, with satisfying personal relationships, and an excellent quality of life?
Drawing on her work at the Yale Child Study Center, Koenig explains how critical it is for kids to not simply learn new social skills that fit their individual needs, but to be able to seamlessly integrate them into a range of day-to-day situations.
This event is FREE.
