Learning and sharing in Orlando

I am one of the lucky ones — I get to spend four days in Orlando at the Autism Society of America Conference. This conference brings together individuals on the spectrum, family members, experts and professionals. Easter Seals is proud to have a formal partnership with Autism Society of America. We’re here to learn and share. Through collaboration, we all become better able to meet the needs of individuals with autism.

Easter Seals has a booth in the exhibit area and will be presenting sessions about our autism services. We’ll be sharing information about three hot topics: State Autism Profiles, Study about Living with Autism and our Spanish-Speaking Hotline.

Autism insurance and legislation information is a topic of interest to many. Easter Seals, in collaboration with Autism Society of America , has gathered state-by-state information regarding autism. Check out our State Autism Profiles to see what’s happening in your state.

Easter Seals is interested in learning about the needs of parents and individuals with autism. Working alongside ASA, we’re currently gathering important data on this topic through a “Living with Autism” study being funded by one of Easter Seals’ national corporate partners, MassMutual Financial Group. If you sign up to receive our monthly enewsletter, you’ll be sure to hear from us when the results of this study are ready to share in early 2009.

Spanish speaking families and individuals with autism need information and support. Addressing health disparities is important to Easter Seals. To help address this need we have a dedicated spanish-speaking telephone hotline. A Spanish speaking information referral representative is available Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Central Time, at 800.353.1799.

The Autism Society of America Conference is a wonderful place to build relationships and learn from each other. I look forward to sharing our three Easter Seals hot-topics and learning from the other attendees. If you too are one of the lucky ones attending the conference, stop by our booth and say hi!
