Highly re­garded autism ex­pert Stephen Shore is head­ing to New Zealand for a se­ries of sem­i­nars.

Autism New Zealand is host­ing Dr Shore and he will give sem­i­nars in Auck­land, Welling­ton and Christchurch.

Di­ag­nosed with atyp­i­cal de­vel­op­ment and strong autis­tic ten­den­cies and con­sid­ered ‘‘too sick’’ for out­pa­tient treat­ment, Dr Shore was rec­om­mended for in­sti­tu­tion­al­i­sa­tion. He was non-ver­bal un­til four.

But with much sup­port, he is now a pro­fes­sor at Adel­phi Univer­sity, New York.

This will be his only New Zealand sem­i­nar tour. He will speak at the Mt Al­bert War Me­mo­rial Hall, from 9am till 1pm on July 31.
