Susan Cortilet-Jones, a NYS Licensed Mental Health Counselor, will discuss the "Hidden Tsunami" of adults on the autism spectrum.  Ms. Jones has been working as counselor with at-risk populations for 25 years.  She currently practices as a "Coach" with adults on the spectrum helping them with the unique challenges associated with this population.

Her presentation will focus on educating graduate students, professionals and the public about this often misunderstood and isolated group of adults by differentiating the issues needs associated with childhood Autism from adults with Autism (ASD).  She says, "We are just beginning to understand the needs of this group, but, are lacking in understanding and limited in providers who provide direct services.
