Keynote Address:
Piece of Body, Piece of Mind, Piece of Hope - Autism, A Treatable Whole Body Disease
Speaker: Dr. Julie Buckley 
 
Working from Leo Kanner's initial description of autism, Dr. Julie Buckley will show how many behavioral manifestations of autism have their origins in metabolic and physiologic dysfunction. At the conclusion of this talk, attendees will have fundamental understanding of autism as a whole body physical illness which, when appropriately treated, results in improved behavioral, cognitive, and social functioning in the classroom and at home.

Keynote Address:
Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum
Speaker: Chantal Sicile-Kira 
 
To become as independent in adulthood as possible, teenagers of all different ability levels must learn self-care, appropriate behaviors, modesty and sexuality. Areas to be covered include: explaining about puberty and changing bodies, hygiene and self-care and how to problem-solve difficulties in teaching self-care routines, and what to do about masturbation. For safety reasons and in preparation for adulthood, all teenagers need to learn about relationship boundaries, and sexuality.

Do you think that the age of 23-25 years are too late? OR can these techniques offered in this book help older higher functioning autistics?
