autismuga’s professional panel

AutismUGA hosted the first Professional Panel last night at the UGA Chapel.  It was a great event that connected UGA students, local families and sevice providers in the community.  The evening featured five wonderful speakers, each providing valuable education and insight.  Thanks to everyone who made the event possible–including our speakers, guests and the fantastic AutismUGA members and volunteers.
