National Autism conference right here in Chicago

Often you have to travel far and spend a lot of money on transportation and lodging to attend a national conference, but this month the Autism One Conference is right down the road in Rosemont!

It's May 24-30 at the O'Hare Westin in Rosemont. A local mom says it will be a fantastic conference — everything imaginable related to autism is there.

Presentations on:
Biomedical research and treatments
All of the therapies — educational, behavioral, communication, etc.
Alternative medicine
Government, legal and personal issues and advocacy
Adolescent, adult and Asperger's issues
And more!
