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.
The Center for Autism and Related Disorders has developed a new online treatment program to be used by teachers, administrators, parents and educators for children with autism. To find out more and how you can get this product for free at a school near you click here.
