Changing The Course of Autism in Canada Conference


AutismOne & Autism Canada Present “CHANGING THE COURSE OF AUTISM IN CANADA 2009” at the University of Toronto

Main Conference: Saturday, October 31 – Sunday, November 1 with Practitioner Training: Friday, October 30

Autism One & Autism Canada are proud to present the first ever joint AutismOne/Autism Canada 2009 Conference. Working with the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto, the organizers are delighted to bring the message of hope and healing to the families of Canada.

The two-day main conference featuring over 20 world-renowned autism authorities offers a biomedical treatments track as well as an educational therapies track. Conference attendees are free to attend any presentation they choose.

The conference will be held at the University of Toronto, Medical Sciences Building, 1 King's College Circle, Toronto. The welcome and keynote address will begin at 8:00 am, Saturday, October 31, in JJR MacLeod Auditorium.

Geared to parents and professionals, the conference presents the most up-to-date medical knowledge and, most importantly, provides the practical information parents can use immediately to begin helping their children get better.        

Lisa Rupe, director of communications for AutismOne, is thrilled to help bring the message of hope and recovery to Canada. “A diagnosis of autism does not have to be a prognosis of lifelong and forever,” says Lisa, “many of our children get better given the proper treatments and therapies.”

In addition, there will be a one-day practitioner workshop on Friday, October 30, at TD Canada Trust, Red Maple and Silver Birch Board Rooms, 1855 Buckhorn Gate, Mississauga. The workshop is geared toward licensed healthcare professionals and has been accredited by the Ontario Chapter for up to 5 Mainpro-M1 credits.

According to Laurie Mawlam, executive director of Autism Canada, “It’s time to educate as many people as possible about the biomedical nature of autism. We need doctors who are trained to help children and parents who are empowered to help their families. We believe the conference and workshop provide a start in a much-needed direction toward changing the course of autism in Canada.”

Seating is limited. For more information about the conference and workshop or to register please visit, email
