2014 Autism Health & Wellness Symposium: Connecting Communities
Welcome to CARD’s Annual Autism Health & Wellness Symposium. This one day symposium is aimed at uniting the community around Health & Wellness for individuals and families impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorders. Research indicates that children with disabilities, including autism spectrum disorder, are at an increased risk of a variety of chronic health conditions. Join us at CARD's Autism Health & Wellness Symposium for EDUCATION, AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER SCREENING, and ACCESS to COMMUNITY RESOURCES.
About the 2014 5th Annual Health & Wellness Symposium
For this year’s symposium, four presenters have been selected to share their expertise around health related topic areas. Our topic areas for 2014 will be: Caring for the Care Giver, Dental Care for People with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Critical Pathways to Adulthood, and Picky Eaters vs Problem Feeders. Exhibitors will be present throughout the day and have been recruited to share community resource information related to health, wellness, recreation, & safety.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a lifelong neurological disability that affects a child’s ability to communicate, understand language, play, and socially interact with one another. Appointments are not required for the Challenging Behavior Screenings that will be provided by the ICEI Clinic. Autism Spectrum Disorder Screenings will be scheduled for families with concerns regarding their child's development on a case by case basis prior to the date of the event and will be conducted by Danielle Sutton, PhD. The Center for Autism & Related Disabilities (CARD) appreciates your support in “Connecting Community” at this year's Autism Health & Wellness Symposium.
