Motivational Speaker and Autism Activist Joe Mohs will share his journey from severe diagnosis of autism to recovery, at the Center for Autism & Related Disorders (CARD) Montana Autism Conference on Saturday, November 19, 2011 at the University of Montana, in Missoula. The conference is free and intended for parents, caregivers, students and practitioners who will have an opportunity to meet Mohs, who has recovered from autism with intense therapy. Mohs will share his story and prove that recovery is possible for those who are affected by autism.
CARD Founder and Executive Director Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh will be a keynote speaker at the 4th Annual “All Ages & Abilities” Autism /Asperger’s Conference in Brooklyn, New York. The conference, hosted by the Autism Conferences of America, will be held November 9-11.
Dr. Jonathan Tarbox will engage you with “Practical Solutions for Addressing Challenging Behaviors”. Children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) often display challenging behaviors such as stereotypy, aggression, self-injurious behavior, tantrums, and property destruction. Several decades of research have conclusively shown that addressing the function, or cause, of the behavior is an effective approach to decreasing challenging behaviors and replacing them with positive alternative behaviors.
The CARD Colorado Autism Conference will be held on Saturday, October 8, 2011 on the University of Denver campus, from 8 am to 5 pm. Keynote speakers include CARD Founder and Executive Director Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh and Joe Mohs who has recovered from autism.
Registration is required to attend the conference. For more information and to secure registration, visit http://www.autism-conferences.com.
Last week, educators from around the world attended the 2011 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference in Philadelphia. Conference organizers say more 17,000 people were in attendance to see, touch, and learn about products and services from more than five hundred of the top education technology companies in the world. Many of the attendees visited the Skills™ exhibit area to learn about the web-based product to effectively design and manage a comprehensive, individualized treatment program for children with autism and related disorders.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, today one in 110 children in America is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. The objective of the conference is to provide attendees with information on the most effective ASD interventions, give attendees strategic methods that address challenging behaviors and to showcase hands-on, groundbreaking technology used to assess and treat developmental disorders.
