The Seaver Autism Center Annual Advances in Autism Conference, now in its 18th year, is an annual one-day event held at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. It includes a series of lectures and workshops given by accomplished professionals in the field of autism. The purpose of the conference is to advance knowledge of the practicing psychiatrist, neurologist, psychologist, geneticist, other health care professional, educator, family member and social worker as to the accurate recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of autism spectrum disorders.
This year's Keynote Speaker is John Elder Robison, New York Times Bestselling Author of "Look Me in the Eye" and "Raising Cubby." Mr. Robison grew up with Asperger's, at a time when the diagnosis did not exist, and with no inkling of how to pass for normal. In his bestselling memoir, Look Me in the Eye, Robison
recounts his incredible life with illuminating insight. In his talks, Robison details how he overcame enormous odds to lead a fulfilling life. Robison has been applauded by thousands for his storytelling skill, his on-stage compassion, and his insistence that anyone can lead successful lives according to gifts, not limitations. In affecting, unforgettable talks, Robison reminds us that people “on the spectrum” can develop throughout their lives, and that it's never too late to hope for or expect change.
