Autism has affected millions of lives in this world. Physicians are continuously trying their best to come up with new ways to improve the quality of Autism Spectrum Disorder’s (ASD) treatment. Parents of children with autism are also eager to know about ways that can help their children win over all challenges. To impart valuable knowledge on ASD to the world, and most importantly to the parents of autistic children, the Autism Education Summit is coming to Texas this October. It is going to combine the experience of parents and the medical expertise of physicians. The two-day conference, from October 17 to October 19, 2014, is expected to become a milestone on the path of ASD treatment and awareness.
Overview of the Conference:
The conference aims to help caregivers, medical professionals and parents. It will help them understand that a holistic approach should be taken and the whole individual should be treated to relieve the behavioral symptoms and medical conditions arising in children, young adults and adolescents suffering from ASD.
The summit will offer an insight into:
