Quote from speaker:Â â€œAs we celebrate April’s World Autism Month, I applaud Bayonne Public Library for offering this event for our community. As someone who used to be nonverbal and today has their doctorate and is a professional speaker, I’m excited about the opportunity to educate to help break down barriers.â€
