Dr. Joshua Diehl

A look at autism from the perspective of ability, not disability, is the theme of an online talk titled “Kaleidoscope Eyes: A Different Perspective on Autism, Art and the World,” to be presented by Dr. Joshua Diehl at 6 p.m. Nov. 4.

This talk complements the Kalamazoo Valley Museum's exhibit Expanding Scott's World: A Journey of Autism Through Art, which is on display through Jan. 2.

Diehl will discuss how autism represents a different way of processing the world and how that difference leads to both talent and areas in need of support.

Diehl is the chief program officer for Child & Adolescent Services at Logan Community Resources in South Bend, Indiana, and has received recognition for his research, teaching and clinical work in the field of autism.

While the program is free, registration at kalamazoomuseum.org is required. The Zoom link will be emailed to those who register by 2 p.m. Nov. 4.
