Autism Consultant Valerie Herskowitz Retains NewsMark Public Relations to Herald the Autism Support Village and Launch of www.valerieherskowitz.com
Date:2/19/2008

BOCA RATON, Fla., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- NewsMark Public Relations today announced it has been retained by leading speech pathologist and autism consultant Valerie Herskowitz to publicize the national expansion of her computer-based intervention for families coping with the challenges of autism and other developmental disabilities.

"We expect a great deal of interest in the results of Valerie's extensive research into the latest special needs technologies," said NewsMark PR CEO Mark Hopkinson. "Reception to her latest lecture at the 'Autism Through the Lifespan' conference in Orlando just this past week has been a useful indicator of the kind of compelling platform she commands."

With the CDC's most recent numbers reporting that one person in every 150 suffers from autism, Herskowitz believes an entire generation of children challenged with the disease are reaching the adolescent stage of their lives and becoming young adults with autism.

"Technology is key to maximizing their future independence," Herskowitz said. "By teaching children with autism how to utilize technology, we can truly capitalize on their strengths and set the stage for the real possibility of future independence."

Herskowitz's research on specialized software programs for use in teaching skills to a special needs population include technological advances designed to equip the special needs home of the future.

She is President of non-profit the National Autism Registry and serves on the advisory board of US Autism & Asperger Association. The founder of the Dimensions Therapy Center which provides private therapy services and special events around the South Florida area for families with special needs, Herskowitz is expanding her computer-based intervention for families on a national scale by establishing a "global autism support village" through podcasts, webcasts and other cyber tools at http://www.valerieherskowitz.com.

Herskowitz's career as a speech pathologist spans some 30 years. A recipient of the Stevie Lifetime Achievement Award for her work with autistic and special needs children, she has also been honored for starting two innovative community programs, Mothers of Special Needs Individuals (MOSI) and the Family Club. Herskowitz's professional journey as a therapist and parent of a child with autism has combined to present her with unique insights in helping other families.
Her youngest son, Blake, was diagnosed with autism in 1993.
