Join us at CIP Berkeley for an interactive speaking symposium hosted in partnership with local television network Berkeley Community Media.

This event is geared towards families with students interested in learning more about career opportunities within the multimedia industry. Community resource organizations are also invited to learn more about opportunities CIP Berkeley makes available to young adults with autism and learning differences interested in this career path.

Speakers will address their expertise in the field and experience working with students on the autism spectrum. A tour of CIP Berkeley and Berkeley Community Media will follow the presentation.
