2nd International Conference, Signs of Autism in Infants: Changing Outcomes Through Early Identification and Intervention, October 11 & 12, 2008; Unique and Critical Event

This conference brings together a roster of visionary and accomplished leaders in autism research and clinical practice who are dedicated to the earliest possible identification of autism in very young children and the initiation of intervention to interrupt and ameliorate the devastating consequences of the diagnosis. During the 2-day event these experts will present the outcomes of their work that will show us hopeful new options and lead the way to widespread early recognition and intervention.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 30, 2008 -- With one in 150 children receiving the diagnosis of autism the need for early identification and intervention is urgent. The 2nd International Conference, Signs of Autism in Infants: Changing Outcomes through Early Identification and Intervention on October 11 & 12, 2008 in Yorba Linda, California is the only conference on the horizon that focuses on the recognition of the earliest signs of autism: those that can be identified infants and toddlers.

During this unique 2-day conference autism experts from the United States, Canada, and Israel will present their latest research on the [signs of autism] in the first year of life, the process and tools of identification, and the strategies for early intervention. Based on years of research and practice, these experts are discovering the developmental trajectory of autism, the behavioral manifestations, and intervention strategies that will enable infants and toddlers to avoid the life-long consequences of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Professionals of all disciplines concerned with early identification and intervention--including physicians, nurses, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, early interventionists, parents, and public officials--are all encouraged to attend. Coming together to learn from the experts, and implementing the results of their research, knowledge and experience, we should finally be able to achieve comprehensive early identification and effective intervention.
