Autism Spectrum Disorders
Hope for the Future

Educational practices and biomedical treatments

Saturday, April 29, 2006
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Western Oregon University, Monmouth, Oregon

The Northwest Autism Foundation and Western Oregon University are sponsoring this event, designed to bring together parents, educators, instructional assistants, administrators, people in the medical field and others to talk about an important issue: autism.

We have gathered experts in the medical and education fields, parents, and an individual with autism to speak about Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) from each of their unique perspectives. These sessions are further complemented by a Brown Bag Lunch Session, an open-ended time to meet, hear more and ask questions of both the facilitators and conference participants. ASD resource tables will have materials to further connect you with area resources.
