Author John Robison, his son Jack Robison, Kirsten Lindsmith and Alex Plank will present a panel discussion for students, focusing on interpersonal relationships at school, in the work place, and in the community, and talk about how to interact in those places. Later, Jack and Kirsten will host boy-girl small-group chats about dating. Alex, who graduated from George Mason University with a degree in Film and Video Studies, will then talk with students in the video production studio about using the internet as a springboard for media productions. John Robison will meet with teachers and staff to discuss the roadblocks he encountered within the public school system, and will describe how the school environment impacts students on the spectrum.
