Autism New Zealand is excited to bring Stephen Shore to New Zealand

Autism New Zealand is proud to be hosting Stephen Shore in New Zealand where he will give a series of seminars in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

Stephen Shore’s seminar theme is ‘Success with Autism: Using our Strengths for Achieving a Fulfilling and Productive Life – Just like Everyone Else”.

Diagnosed with “Atypical development and strong autistic tendencies” and “too sick” for outpatient treatment Stephen Shore was recommended for institutionalisation. Nonverbal until four, and with much support from his parents, teachers, wife, and others, Stephen is now a professor at Adelphi University where his research focuses on matching best practice to meet the needs of people with autism.

Stephen Shore is President emeritus of the Asperger’s Association of New England and former board member of the Autism Society. Stephen Shore serves in the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee, Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism Association, United States Autism and Asperger Alliance and other autism related organisations.

This will be Stephen’s only New Zealand seminar tour.

Seminars are from 9.00am – 1.00pm

Auckland 31 July, Wellington 2 August and Christchurch 5 August.
