Health Law Institute at DePaul University College of Law to Host Autism Symposium on World Autism Day, April 2
Date:3/27/2009

CHICAGO, March 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Autism affected an estimated 1.5 million people in 2007. By 2013, the Autism Society of America predicts that the disability will impact as many as 4 million Americans and that the cost for its care and treatment will reach between $200 and $400 billion, making it the nation's fastest-growing developmental disability.

In recognition of World Autism Day, the Health Law Institute at the DePaul University College of Law will explore autism as a public health concern and discuss some of the legal and social issues it raises. The program will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 2 at the University Club of Chicago, 76 E. Monroe St. Reservations are required for attendance and can be obtained by contacting Rhea Alexis Banks at 312/362-7271 or rbanks2@depaul.edu.

The panel discussions will address specific topics relating to autism, such as its psych
