Whether you've just received a diagnosis of autism or you've struggled for years to find answers, you know how difficult it can be to find hope. The vast amount of information, in cyberspace or print, from doctors to friends, on special diets to social skills, can overwhelm even the most dedicated parent. How can you sort through the junk mail and begin down the road to success?

"The primary function of the USAAA conference is where parents, caregivers, health care practitioners, individuals with autism, students, educators, therapists and anyone who wants to learn more about services and treatment for persons living with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can learn about effective interventions – both medical and educational.

Introducing the US Autism & Asperger Association 2011 World Conference & Expo. The theme: "Autism Education and Treatment: A Road to Wellness." The goal: to demystify the confusion around autism and to arm you with tools of practical protocols and new resources.
