The 2011 Current Trends in Autism Conference

Posted Dec 07 2010 9:11pm

I just got my second announcement for this conference in my email. The 2011 Current Trends in Autism Conference will be held in April of 2011. The conference is being organized by LADDERS . LADDERS is an effort by the Nancy Lurie Marks Family Foundation . So far there aren’t many details on the conference, but given the scope of the Foundation and of Ladders, I have hope that this will be a good, quality conference.

The Nancy Lurie Marks Foundation established an effort at Massachusetts General Hospital to focus on the needs of autistic adults, with a $29M grant .

Here is the announcement:

The 2011 Current Trends in Autism Conference will take place April 29-30, 2011, at Crowne Plaza Boston – Natick Hotel.

We will present the most up to date, scientifically sound information in the field of Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorders to parents and professionals concerned about children, adolescences and adults whose diagnosis falls along the Autism Spectrum.

Neurobiological and clinical research, as well as strategies for interventions have advanced dramatically over the past several years and our distinguished faculty will report on what is now known, how what we know can be applied to the education and care of those with Autism, and what direction future research needs to take in order to advance our knowledge and understanding of this disorder.

All proceeds from the conference are used to finance new and ongoing neurobiologic research and to support ongoing evaluation and treatment services and the development of new interventional programs.

More details to come.
