Are you planning to attend the AUTISM ONE 2008 CONFERENCE?
Jenny McCarthy is giving the key note address. Dr. Amy Yasko is presenting. Even better? Dan Olmsted, Mark Blaxill and I are presenting on Saturday morning the 24th. (Don't tell Jenny and Dr. Y. I said, "even better!" OK?) And did I mention, that the AAP headquarters is darn close? Maybe we'll shoot over there and inject our presence? And the kicker? A1 offers babysitting so you can bring your children.
5 Days That Will Change Your Child's Life
The Sixth Annual Autism One Conference Returns to Chicago
Wednesday, May 21 – Sunday, May 25, Chicago, Illinois
THE REALITY OF RECOVERY Autism is a whole-body condition with many causes and many roads to recovery. Some children develop autism from vaccines, other children from exposure to molds, pesticides, and a host of environmental toxins.
The pioneering efforts of parents and practitioners have brought new appreciation about the underlying causes that create the conditions of autism. Understanding the causes has led to
safe and effective treatments that are helping our children get better.
Main Conference: Friday, May 23 – Sunday, May 25

1. Biomedical Treatments
