Date:6/26/2008

During this 2-day conference experts from around the world will present their latest research on indicators of autism in the first year of life, the process and tools of identification, and strategies for early intervention. These experts have been discovering the links between theory and practice that will enable infants and toddlers to escape the life altering consequences of autism spectrum disorder.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 26, 2008 -- Identifying the signs of autism before the age of one is a priority at the forefront of the scientific, health, and education communities. Steady progress is being made in all disciplines that address the autistic spectrum. This unique conference provides an opportunity for experts across key disciplines to discuss and reach a consensus on strategies for early identification and intervention. This event -- the Second International Conference on Signs of Autism in Infants: Changing Outcomes through Early Identification and Intervention -- is scheduled for October 11 and 12, 2008 in Southern California.

Hosted by Child Development Media, Inc., the conference will bring together experts from all over the world who will share their latest research on the identification of early indicators of autism as well as their experience with the process and tools for diagnosis. The second day of the conference will be devoted entirely to state-of-the-art intervention approaches. Professionals of all disciplines, including public officials, early interventionists, allied health professionals, pediatricians, nurses, and parents concerned about autism are all invited to attend.

Margie Wagner, President of Child Development Media and chief organizer of the conference states that "our First International Conference on Signs of Autism in Infants, held May 2006 at UCLA, helped to raise awareness of the need for early diagnosis. This year we will bring together experts from Canada, Italy, Israel, and the United States to help develop a methodology and plan of action!"

Autism is a condition of urgent public health concern. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that approximately one in l50 children will eventually be diagnosed with an autism disorder in the U.S. There is an extreme need for early recognition and intervention for preventing the onset of what would otherwise become a lifelong, devastating condition.

It is the opinion of Margie Wagner that, "based on what we know from research and from experience, it is imperative that we develop intervention techniques for use as close to birth as possible. It is my belief that this conference will give us the tools we need to move us closer to that goal for the betterment of the lives of babies and their concerned parents."
