About the event

What  does it mean to be an adult? How is the transition to adulthood  addressed in neurodivergent populations? Presented by a neurodivergent  educator, we will explore the social and emotional elements of this  transition and how we can better support our students and children  through this process. 

Amy Faigin is a neurodivergent educator, activist and individual.  Diagnosed as autistic at age thirteen, she attended Bridges Academy, a  school for twice-exceptional students. After graduating from high  school, she pursued a degree in Digital Media at Otis College of Art and  Design, and began work as an independent designer. Amy now teaches at  Bridges Academy, instructing in entertainment design, technological  history, and mentoring students through their self-directed Young Expert  program. She also works with the Ed Asner Family Center as a  spokesperson, educator, and co-leader of their LGBTQ+ group. Amy is  presently pursuing further education through the Bridges Graduate School  of Cognitive Diversity in Education in order to continue growing as an  educator and advocate.
