2014 Autism Health & Wellness Symposium: Connecting Communities
Welcome to the 5th Annual Autism Health & Wellness Symposium. This one day conference is aimed at uniting the community around Health & Wellness for individuals and families impacted by autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Research indicates that children with disabilities including ASD are at increased risk of a variety of chronic health conditions such as obesity, in part due to medication side effects, limited access to fitness opportunities, and challenging behavior. This year's event will highlight an onsite screening of children at risk for ASD. Join us at CARD's Autism Health & Wellness Symposium for EDUCATION, AUTISM SCREENING, and ACCESS to COMMUNITY RESOURCES.
The Autism Health & Wellness Symposium will highlight the importance of screening for ASD and offer screening appointments. Early detection of children at risk for autism and connecting families with available community resources are important steps toward successful long term outcomes. The CDC continues to report 1 in every 88 children are being diagnosed with an ASD and encourage coordinated screening. ASD is a lifelong neurological disability that affects a child’s ability to communicate, understand language, play, and socially interact with one another. The Center for Autism & Related Disabilities (CARD) appreciates your support in “Connecting Community” at this year's Autism Health & Wellness Symposium.
