As individuals, family members, and professionals in the disability community strive for empowerment, rights and more knowledge about neurodiversity, it is important to recognize and use the power of press.

Shift is a journal that focuses on neurodiversity, social change and disability rights. In this webinar, Editor and Publisher, Mark Stairwalt, shares the most compelling articles from the journal and the impact that they have made in furthering the cause of disability rights. He will also discuss Evolution, Autism, and Social Change, a book written by Shift’s founder, Andrew Lehman, as well as Julia Bascom’s recent viral success with “The Obsessive Joy of Autism.” Join us to find out more about Shift’s inception and the importance of press in the progression of disability rights and awareness.
