Recap: AMCHP’s State Public Health Autism Resource Center (SPHARC) 2021 Autism Acceptance Month Activities
May 07, 2021

During Autism Acceptance Month, we focus on sharing positive, respectful, and accurate information about autism and autistic people. This Autism Acceptance Month, SPHARC hosted a series of four coffee talks. The coffee talk series featured different topics of interest based on technical assistance requests from the SPHARC community. While SPHARC identified the topics, all the credit goes to our speakers and especially the autistic advocates who helped design the content and presentations. The recordings can be found by clicking the images below. For additional questions, please contact Paige Bussanich at
