Among the broader topics touched were:
1) Biological Mechanism of Autism and Implications for Practice
2) Children Across The Autistic Spectrum
3) Adolescents Across The Autistic Spectrum
4) Adults Across The Autism Spectrum
5) Asperger Syndrome
I am still full of the new knowledge I’ve learned from the lectures and discussion with the professionals (doctors, psychologist, therapist and teachers) and parents who attended the conference. Now it’s time to practice. I will post more about all the information I’ve gathered in there that can be helpful for all the parents in the world with or without autism in their family. It was amazing to learn about asperger syndrome too as there is a thin line between autism and asperger that some would find it hard to distinguish.
For now I will leave you with these photos:
Some parents and students with Prof. Jordan
First day of conference I saw my parent buddies from the first Autism seminar I attended last year Cindy and Cathy. Happy to see some of my support group.
Parent buddies Cathy and Cindy with Enzo (17 y.o. with Asperger Syndrome very impressive boy gave us hope for our children. He was non-verbal until he was 10. Now he talks a lot and very intelligent!)
With Cindy and Cathy. Modeling at the every nation institute how to carry the GAP conference bag in three ways!
Gabby (guy in blue with Asperger diagnosed at 43, launched his comic books Life as A Comic Book and Captain Dodgers. His family didn’t know that he had Asperger since asperger was only known in 1994, imagine the hard times he and his went through trying to figure him out.)
The conference hall was jammed-packed on the first day because some psychology students and teachers were invited to welcome the guest lecturer.
Note: If you have questions about autism, asperger and places for diagnosis please feel free to ask, I’ll answer to the best of my knowledge or refer you to the right sources.
