CONROE, TX -- Lone Star College-Montgomery is committed to fostering neurodiversity awareness within the Hispanic community by promoting recognition, acceptance, and inclusion of students with autism and other disabilities. On April 18th, from 6 to 8 p.m., LSC-M will host “Connecciones Transformadoras. Navegando Disabilidades Cognitivas en los Estados Unidos” (Transformational Connections: Navigating Cognitive Disabilities in the US). This event, primarily conducted in Spanish, is designed for neurodiverse individuals, community members, service providers, and others who support the Hispanic community in our area.

Our distinguished guest speaker, Josephine Avila, Psy.D., will deliver a 30-minute presentation, followed by a panel discussion featuring representatives from Lone Star College, Conroe ISD, Tri-County Behavioral Healthcare, and Communities in Schools.
