Current Trends In Autism Conference – April 29-30, 2011
Posted Jan 05 2011 5:18pm
I’ve written before here at LeftBrainRightBrain about the upcoming Current Trends in Autism Conference . At the time I first heard about it, I was hopefully optimistic that a good conference might be in the works. Autism parents are in great need of a real science based conference. The conference is being organized by the Lurie Family Autism Center LADDERS (“Learning and Developmental Disabilities Evaluation & Rehabilitation Services”).
The speaker list is now available, and I copy it below ( go to their site if you want live links for each speaker):
Current List of Speakers
Margaret L. Bauman, MD
Director, TARF and LFAC/LADDERS/MGH; Associate Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School
Andy Zimmerman, MD
Pediatric Neurologist, LFAC/LADDERS/MGH
Additional speakers to be announced!
So far, one autistic adult is on the program, Jerry Newport . More autistic adults will be included as well.

Harold L Doherty:
What subjects or topics will each speaker be addressing?
Any idea which of them will be speaking about ABA and the evidence
base in support of ABA as an autism disorder intervention?
