Brooklyn Letters is presenting a multidisciplinary parent-friendly lecture on Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in early childhood through the adolescence years tomorrow, February 7, at the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture.

The one-hour lecture will help parents understand the assessment process and diagnostic criteria of ASD. It will also explore the best ways to support a child with ASD, especially in school, social dynamics, and communication. Information will be presented by neuropsychologist Dr. Lindsay Whitman, child psychologist Dr. Carolyn Kessler, learning specialist and author Dr. Blythe Grossberg, and speech language therapist Craig Selinger (pictured above).

A Q&A with the experts will follow the lecture, and active audience participation is encouraged. Dr. Grossberg’s book Asperger’s Rules!: How to Make Sense of School and Friends will be raffled off for free to several audience members.

Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture is located at 53 Prospect Park West, 7:15-9:00 p.m., $25 for person or $40 per couple, email Craig at to reserve a spot.
