On July 11, the non-profit organization, Los Angeles Families for Effective Autism Treatment (LA FEAT), held another free monthly meeting at the Kiwanis Club Hall of Hermosa Beach to provide support and advice for families affected by autism spectrum disorders. Parents were especially delighted to participate in this month’s meeting which featured two guest speakers representing the Center for Autism and Related Disorders. CARD Director of Research and Development, Dr. Jonathan Tarbox, PhD, BCBA-D, gave valuable advice in his presentation “Using ABA to Teach Higher Level Cognitive Skills to Children with Autism”.
Joe Mohs, who recovered from infantile autism as a small child, led the second half of the evening by telling the inspirational story of his triumph over the condition. Joe led a question and answer session where he spoke about his personal experience with autism, his devoted family, the life-transforming ABA program as well as his life, work and social relationships after recovery. “It’s is not a cure or a remedy,” Joe said while defining the term autism recovery, “it’s an intensive process that requires personal commitment and sacrifice, not only during your child’s treatment program but throughout his or her life.” Joe’s heartfelt words left the audience with a profound, positive impact and a strong sense of hope for their children. At end of the meeting, the audience was informed about how their children can benefit greatly from Skills™, the online autism treatment and training program, and CARD eLearning™.
