About The Webinar

Kuri Yasuno is a mother raising two sons, one of whom is on the autism spectrum. She relates her experiences as an immigrant wanting to assimilate and feel included, to her son’s life and provides insights into what parenting a special child can be like.

In her conversation with Mindful Return’s Lori Mihalich-Levin, Kuri will discuss the importance of autism awareness and will share her thoughts on the need for intentional inclusion.  Their conversation will also cover:

  • The Importance of Sharing Personal Experiences

    With more children being diagnosed with ASD, Kuri shares her own experiences, to help parents who have just received a diagnosis of their own for their child.

  • Awareness & Inclusion, in School & Society

    Having seen her son’s struggles, Kuri shares her ideas on how to improve awareness and her thoughts on the need for more inclusion in schools and in society.

  • The Desire to Belong

    Having been an immigrant and having to learn English, Kuri understands the feelings of wanting to fit in and to assimilate, and how her own feelings relate to her son’s experiences.
