Join us for the NFAR Mom's Group! It's an evening for Moms to come together in a fun and relaxed setting. The group will meet the 3rd Thursday of the month for dinner and guest speakers. It's an opportunity to share resources, experiences and enjoy being with other moms of individuals with autism.
April Topic: Living with Autism
Please join us for a special evening with guest speaker Erik Weber, a young man with autism as he talks about his journey, and the strategies used to overcome his struggles with communication, behavior, and learning issues.
"In 1991, my parents took me to a doctor.
*My parents were told I was retarded and Autistic.
*My parents were told I had no hope.
*My parents were told to find an institution.
That institution turned out to be college."
Guest Speaker: Erik Weber, Esq.
Doctors said I would not be mentally older than eighteen months, but my parents did not give up on me.
In 2009, I completed my Bachelor’s Degree program in International Development Studies with a 3.9 GPA at Point Loma Nazarene University. In May 2011, I graduated from San Diego State University with a Master’s Degree in Public Administration and a 3.7 Grade Point Average. In December 2014, I graduated from the California Western School of Law (CWSL) and in 2015, I took for the first time and passed the California Bar Exam.
Now I am pursuing my passion of helping others with special needs. Being a person with Autism gives me a unique first-person perspective on what works or does not work toward servicing individuals with intellectual differences.
