Each spring and fall AHA hosts our renowned bi-annual educational conferences in a university setting. The goal of these conferences is to meet the demand for how to address the needs of youth through adults on the spectrum with the most current methods and initiatives.
AHA’s Fall Conference – October 15th, 2016
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.
