Quentin Mezetin, a Dad and devoted husband with 2 children on the autism spectrum (out of 5 siblings) will be featured April, 14, 2024, at First Baptist Church, 100-10 Astoria, East Elmhurst, NY 11369.  The event will be conducted in person and on Zoom, and requires registration.

The topic of the Lunch & Learn, will be: Autism Awareness & Fighting Ableism.  You can register for the event here

This is a free event, conducted during April, which is Autism Awareness Month.  A light lunch will be served.  Mezetin, is also the Founder of IamD.A.D (Defeating Autism Daily).

As a dad on the autism spectrum who has spoken to Mr. Mezetin, I can assure you this will be a moving and insightful discussion about overcoming the challenges of Autism.  

Quentin draws deep from his love and commitment as a father to help advocate and support families experiencing the mixed blessings and challenges of having  autistic children.  As a born and raised resident of Queens he is an inspiration for people encouraged by his presence as a dedicated father and also father figure to the larger community.

Rarely do we see or hear from Black Fathers in the major media.  And even less visible are Black men actively involved as co-care givers of children dealing with the autism spectrum disorder.

Autism is becoming increasingly known about in our society because in part more and more parents are having children on the spectrum.  Quentin has 5 children and two (2) of them and his wife's youngest children are on the spectrum

In the past, I persuaded Quentin to open up and share his experiences and mission to help other families, especially those striving to defeat autism daily. His exclusive interview follows the short video with him below...
