There will be a three-day symposium July 23 through July 25, to hear from the leaders in autism research and practice. This year’s keynote speaker Ron Suskind is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, best-selling author and the force behind the Sidekicks mobile app.
Suskind’s best-seller, “Life Animated” chronicles his family’s 20-year journey raising and connecting with their autistic son. The Sus-kind’s are also the subject of an award-wining documentary with the same title.
Other speakers include Dr. Barry M. Prizent, Dr. Brenda Smith Myles and Cheryl Boucher. Complimentary lunch will be provided, and attendees will receive a copy of Suskind’s book. Register at rebrand.ly/R4Autism, #R4Autism.
