Save the date: 12th annual Autism Spectrum Disorder Conference June 18-19

Milestones Autism Resources, formerly known as Milestones Autism Organization, will host the 12th annual Autism Spectrum Disorder Conference on Wednesday, June 18, and Thursday, June 19, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Cleveland I-X Center. The conference is sponsored by the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine’s Continuing Medical Education program and Milestones Autism Resources.

The conference brings family members and professionals in the field of autism together to share evidence-based practical strategies and best practices. Attendees can engage in more than 75 educational workshops focusing on practical, field-tested ideas and be inspired by the national keynotes: Peter Gerhardt, national autism consultant, and Brittany Lauber and Justin Rooney, self advocates. The two-day event will also provide the opportunity to network and visit with dozens of exhibits featuring autism-specific products and services.

For the first time, the Milestones Conference will offer exclusive parent features, a Medical Track and an Employment Track. Parents will have a separate check-in area where staff will be available to guide them in selecting which workshops to attend and will have the option of attending a special networking luncheon. Medical professionals including physicians, nurses and physician assistants can earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) in Medical Track sessions on Thursday, June 19. Thursday will also include the new Employment Track for adults with ASD, families, job coaches, employment specialists and transition coordinators.
