Participants chose from an array of expert-led break-out sessions that covered the latest trends and techniques related to autism – successful therapies, health and educational services, life balance, transitioning to adulthood and more.
Dr. Temple Grandin, the world-renowned autism advocate and best-selling author, spoke about how she succeeded in life not despite her autism diagnosis but because of it. Attendees heard her insights on the issues facing the autistic community today. The day clinched with a special performance featuring local young people with autism, as part of the 4th Wall Theatre Company.
Participants received information and advice from those working/coping/thriving with autism. There was an opportunity to talk to session leaders, doctors, therapists and service providers – as well as other parents and professionals – during the provided continental breakfast and lunch.
