Learning to Listen Through Autism

Come eavesdrop on a mother and son, Jennie Grau and Chris Ruge, exploring what it is like to live, love, learn, and listen to each other when one has an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis and the other has a lifelong passion for listening. This interview style conversation provides a glimpse into the struggles and blessings of growing up in a multigenerational listening centric environment. Discover tips and tools we have evolved over 22-years.

Join the conversation and help build and share this important toolbox with others.

Come prepared to meet people from around the world and to participate in activities that engage you in new ways to think and talk about listening!
