2014 Autism Society of America Conference – Breakout Sessions

2014 ASA Conference - Breakout Sessions

The 45th Annual Autism Society of America (ASA) kicks off on July 23, 2014 at the Indiana Convention Center & Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. ASA’s annual autism conference is one of the most information-packed conferences I’ve ever attended – autism or not. To get an idea of what I’m talking about, here’s just a small sampling of the breakout sessions being offered this year:

  • Grief and Autism: Conceptualizing, Comprehending and Living through It
  • Better Equipping Students, Schools, and Communities for Life after High School
  • Autism and Employment Issues: A Panel Discussion
  • Battling the New DSM-5: Getting a Child What They Need
  • IDEA Requirements and the Common Core Standards for Students with ASD
  • Being Present: The Family Journey to Acceptance and Resilience
  • The Autism Spectrum and the Mystery of Social Security Disability: What You Need to Know
  • Girl World: Understanding and Supporting Girls with ASD
  • “Social Impairment!?” NOT! the Role of Friendship and Mentoring in ASDs
  • Improving Core Symptoms of ASD in Toddlers: Pilot Data on the Meta-Play Method
  • Sexuality and Autism Spectrum Disorder: Lessons on Sex, Dating, and Love, Autism Style
  • Speaking for Ourselves: Panel of Individuals with ASD
  • Bullying….a Full Spectrum Approach
  • Guy Talk: Engaging Fathers and Strengthening Families
  • Friends and Fitness: Strong Friendships Strong Bodies
