THANKS TO ALL FOR MAKING OUR 2016 FALL CONFERENCE ANOTHER GREAT ONE!! WE’RE ALREADY PLANNING FOR OUR 2017 FALL CONFERENCE. SEE YOU THEN.
A Day with Dr. Tony Attwood
Location: Ruth Harley University Center (large, star-shaped, red brick building) at Adelphi University, 1 South Avenue, Garden City, NY 11530.
The purpose of this conference and the collaboration between AHA and CHI (Adelphi’s Center for Health Innovation) is to address the educational, social and behavioral issues pertaining to individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Our internationally known speaker will present current and effective strategies for higher functioning individuals on the autism spectrum from childhood through adulthood. The overarching goal of CHI is to be a leader in promoting the health and well-being of people living on the autism spectrum, their families, caregivers and communities at large. We have made this a priority of the center and we hope our work with AHA will continue to lead us in that direction.
