Date:8/1/2008

For the second consecutive year, Omega Institute will host an important conference at its Rhinebeck campus August 15-17, for professionals and families managing autism spectrum disorders, to explore the latest research and development in treating and living with autism.

Rhinebeck, NY (PRWEB) August 1, 2008 -- For the second consecutive year, Omega Institute will host an important conference at its Rhinebeck campus August 15-17, for professionals and families managing http://eomega.org/omega/workshops/c9608b6c86845134c0921c3b3c3de737/ [autism spectrum disorders], to explore the latest research and development in treating and living with autism. The number of children diagnosed with autism every year is increasing at an alarming rate; the disorder now affects one in every 150 children according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Omega Institute's rare gathering will feature some of the nation's most innovative voices in the autism community.

"As an organization committed to a holistic approach to healing, Omega is deeply gratified to partner with The Center for Discovery to bring new insights and resources to those working or living with autism," said Carla Goldstein, director of external affairs at Omega.

"By approaching healing from many angles, including those outside the traditional medical model, we can learn how to improve the overall health of individuals and society," said Goldstein.

This year the conference offers a professional training that is open to those working in the field of autism as well as family members of those with autism.

The program will provide the latest information to professionals working in the medical, nutrition, therapeutic and mental health fields. It will also focus on the diagnosis, alternative approaches to treatment and therapy, and insights into working productively with families. Family members will learn ways to better care for themselves and their entire family, while caring for an individual with an autism spectrum disorder, and how to navigate the autism advocacy landscape.

CE credits are available. To register please call 800.944.1001 or visit eomega.org.
