Zosia Zaks to Speak about Autism

Zosia Zaks has Asperger Syndrome. She was diagnosed as an adult at the age of 31. Having devised many creative strategies to address autism-related issues over the years, she wrote Life and Love: Positive Strategies for Autistic Adults to help other adults on the spectrum.

Next Wednesday, March 12, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., Zosia will be speaking at the Berkeley Heights Public Library about the differences betweeen autism, Asperger syndrome and PPD-NOS. She will answer your questions about autism, including what happens to children with autism once they've grown up. She will be available for book signings at the end of the talk. There is no fee, but please call the library at 464-9333 to register.

In addition to speaking and conducting workshops on issues of importance to the Autism community, Zosia Zaks also consults with families, autistic adults, and professionals to meet challenges based on autistic strengths. She is currently pursuing licensure as a rehabilitation counselor at Hunter College.
