Bay Area to host Autism Community Forum

San Francisco, here I come!

Okay, really, I am going to be in Oakland. But that is so close! I lived in the Bay Area for almost ten years and, much like Tony Bennett, I left (at least a bit of) my heart there.

But next week I’ll be back. Easter Seals Bay Area is hosting a community autism event on February 5 to highlight evidence-based practice treatment strategies for children with autism, and I’m really looking forward to it.

One of the delightful things about this forum is that it will gather multiple community organizations, and we’ll all be there to share information and ideas. Nobody can meet the growing needs of individuals with autism alone, we must work together. Professionals from UCSF Autism Clinic will be at the forum, and professionals from the M.I.N.D. Institute are coming too. The health-related policy consultant for California’s Senate President pro Tem will also be in the mix.

Interest is high for the Easter Seals Bay Area Autism Community Forum. In fact, the forum is sold out: all three hundred available seats have been taken. This is testimony of the desire for quality information on the topic of autism. How wonderful that this is an inclusive event, drawing experts from the local community to meet the incredible needs of individuals with autism.
