Breaking Barriers is a new initiative by the link to create dialogue, sessions, and events around topics that push us as a community forward.
This first conversation starts with creating awareness and understanding of neurodiverse individuals in our local communities and beyond.
Join us at the link as we partner with IBCCES for deep-dive discussion. Currently, the link is working towards its Neurodiversity and Autism Certification for our space, leading to a more inviting and inclusive place for our community.
Attendees will also be able to tour the space and learn more about offerings, activities, and classes in our studios.
