United Services for Children will present its eighth annual Exploring the Spectrum autism information fair on Saturday, April 4, at the Spencer Road Library Community Commons in St. Peters. As always, the event is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 8 a.m. (Please note the earlier start time this year.)
Our keynote speaker is Tanner Richard Craft, a senior at Webster University, who wrote and directed a short film titled “Diagnosis,” about a mother learning that her child has Autism Spectrum Disorder. Craft based the film on his own experience growing up with autism. The film, and Craft, attracted media attention when it was selected for screening at the 2019 Whitaker St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase last July. The film will be screened at 9 a.m. during the Exploring the Spectrum event, followed by a Q&A with Craft and his mother, Tanya Craft.
In addition, there will be many breakout sessions and a room full of exhibitor tables providing helpful information and resources. Though the event is free, we ask that you register at the link below.
The 2020 Exploring the Spectrum autism information fair is made possible in part through a generous contribution by Compass Health Network.
