Next week (May 23rd – May 27th), parents, educators, physicians and individuals with autism will be converging on a Chicago-area suburb for a conference aimed at educating attendees about the disorder and its treatment options.

The 2012 AutismOne / Generation Rescue Conference will be held at The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center and feature over 130 speakers, six of which will be featured. 

The main purpose of this event (as in previous years) will be to provide education and support for families and professionals working and dealing with autism. In addition to the speakers, there will be presenters, authors and exhibitors, as well as official credits and units available for doctors, nurses, therapists and first responders (CME). Child care will be provided for families with children.

Thousands of people are expected to turn out for the five-day event, which promises to focus on biomedical treatments and other strategies that parents and their health care teams can implement.

Registration is $25 per person and covers materials and processing fees for all general session tracks and lectures.

Despite your opinion about biomedical treatment options for autism (good, bad or indifferent), this conference will be an excellent opportunity to network with many other individuals within the autism community who are sharing similar challenges. I personally will not be attending but have heard nothing but positive things from those who have attended in previous years. If you live close to the Chicago area or can swing the travel costs, you may want to consider checking it out.
