Dr. Grandin is a designer of livestock handling facilities, Associate Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and a bestselling author (Thinking in Pictures).

Acknowledging that autism is a spectrum with different abilities and challenges, the keynote on Sunday April 11 at 8:00 am PST will be given by Jeremy Sicile-Kira who was highlighted in the MTV award-winning True Life episode, “I Have Autism.” Jeremy will present on Learning With Autism: A Personal Viewpoint using power point with voice output. “Jeremy has experienced home schooling, special education and inclusion, and many types of therapies in California, France and the UK. It’s not often we get to hear from someone as impacted as Jeremy about what it is like to be on the receiving end of therapies and treatments,” explained Chantal Sicile-Kira, autism advocate and award-winning author who will be moderating both keynote presentations. Her latest book, 41 Things to Know About Autism, has just been published by Turner Publishing.

Donna Williams, Dip Ed, BA Hons, consultant and author of 9 books (Nobody Nowhere, Somebody Somewhere) will present on Meaning Deafness, Meaning Blindness and Body Disconnectedness.

"In honor of Autism Awareness month, I wanted to provide practical information on autism for free to all who needed it,” said Ernest Priestly, Founder of momsfightingautism.com. “Many parents have a hard time leaving their home to attend conferences. A virtual conference is the best way for many people to get information they need without leaving their home. I’m glad I can help make their lives a little easier.”
