The UCLA Center for Autism Research and Treatment & The Nathanson Family Resource Center at the UCLA Semel Institute Present A Free Talk
Mark Osteen, professor at Loyola University Maryland and award-winning author of a new book, “One of Us: A Family’s Life with Autism” ( University of Missouri Press ), will speak about his life as the father of a son with severe autism. Osteen will share excerpts from his book, which was endorsed by Temple Grandin and was recently named one of nine poignant autism books by The Huffington Post.
During the talk, Osteen will convey lessons learned from his family’s twenty-one-year journey through adversity to understanding. He shows how parents should not just teach their children with autism, but also learn from them: learn how to listen, how to live in the moment, and how to accept their own disabilities. A UCLA Center for Autism Research and Treatment faculty member, Connie Kasari, Ph.D. will join the discussion.
