Autism Awareness

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.

On January 8th, the School hosted guest-speaker Erica Bland, the Assistant Clinical Director and Speech-Language Pathologist at Communication Works, an Oakland-based speech therapy practice. Autism Awareness Club’s Co-Presidents, Seniors Kaitlin Colvin and Danielle Sitzman, invited Bland to speak to the Upper School about autism. Colvin explained, “We wanted the community to gain a deeper understanding of autism. We wanted everyone to learn what it’s like to be someone with autism (even though it varies) and how to interact with people with autism.”

To begin her presentation, Bland asked those in the audience to raise their hands if they knew someone with autism, and students and faculty looked around to see the majority of hands in the air. Bland then jumped into an engaging presentation that intrigued the student body. “I wrote about autism for my neurobiology book report, so for me it was really interesting to expand upon my knowledge of autism,” commented Senior Kristina Randrup. She added, “Previously, I had learned about the neurobiological differences and implications, but it was cool to hear more about the social implications. I think it was a really important assembly to have because we specifically learned how we can be helpful to those with autism.” Students and teachers praised Bland and Autism Awareness Club following Assembly, and Colvin added that “lots of students and teachers came up to our speaker after the presentation to ask questions, and one was [even] interested in volunteering.”

Ultimately, Bland’s presentation benefitted everyone in the School community. Randrup elaborated on the presentation’s wide-reaching messages: “What we learned can also be applied to anyone who feels socially uncomfortable, so it is good information to have regardless of whether you know someone with autism.”

Bland’s presentation, however, was only one of the initiatives Autism Awareness Club has led. Previously, the club held a bake sale and paired each sweet treat with a fact about autism. The Club will unfortunately lose both its co-presidents next school year, yet after such a compelling presentation, there is no doubt that students interested in studying autism will step up in their place.
