On April 7th, NIMH is hosting a virtual event featuring an interview with Asperger’s Are Us, the first comedy troupe composed entirely of people diagnosed with Asperger syndrome (autism). Their comedic style focuses on deadpan wordplay and dark absurdism.

On April 28th, NIMH will feature presentations from the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Department of Education, and the U.S. Department of Labor on issues related to health, education, and employment for people with disabilities during the pandemic, followed by a discussion with leaders from the autism advocacy community.
