Expanding the Horizon-An Event for Parents of Children with Disabilities

Guest Speaker: Russell Lehmann is an award-winning and internationally recognized motivational speaker, poet, author and advocate whose words have reached over 20 million people worldwide, from Argentina to Norway, Lebanon to Australia. Russell began to experience symptoms and struggles around the age of three, however not a single doctor or specialist could figure out what was happening. In 2003, at the age of 12, Russell was admitted to the psychiatric ward at a local hospital. He stayed there for five weeks, which were some of the toughest of his life. He unfortunately left this hospital without any diagnosis. Later that year, in 2003, Russell was finally diagnosed with autism at the University of Washington’s Autism Center. In 2011 Russell wrote a book titled “Inside Out: Stories and Poems from an Autistic Mind” which was featured in the LA Times, earned an Honorable Mention at the 2012 NY Book Festival and won the award for Literary Excellency at the 2013 International Autistic People’s Awards in Vancouver, Canada.
