Motivational speaker and autism activist Joe Mohs will share his journey from autism to recovery at the Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) Montana Autism Conference on Saturday, November 19, 2011 at the University of Montana, in Missoula, Montana. The conference is free for all attendees who will have an opportunity to meet Joe, who will share his story and show that recovery from autism is possible.
Joe will address the existing autism epidemic and how he recovered through intense applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy. “A lot of people believe that autism is untreatable,” says Mohs. “I want to let people know that there is hope. I recovered from autism through ABA and I would not be who I am today without the help of the outstanding therapists of CARD.”
Joe is an advocate for autism who travels around the nation sharing his journey to help improve the lives of individuals diagnosed with autism. When Joe was treated, only 1 out of every 2,000 children were diagnosed with the condition. Today, those numbers have increased dramatically, to 1 out of 110. Mohs has dedicated his life to bringing more awareness to autism, giving families with children on the spectrum living proof that autism recovery is possible.
