11th Annual Autism Conference

Join Children’s Autism Services of Edmonton on January 24th & 25th, 2019 at the River Cree Resort and Casino. The conference will showcase a number of guest speakers including New York Times best-selling author Steve Silberman, Dr. Pamela Wolfberg, Ken Robertson, Lonnie Zwaigenbaum, and more!

 

Steve Silberman is the author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity. Silberman is an award-winning science writer, and his TED talk, “The Forgotten History of Autism,” has been viewed more than a million times and translated into 25 languages.

In his book and his keynote presentations, Silberman shares little-known stories of the researchers and psychiatrists who pioneered the first autism diagnoses while also providing long-sought solutions to the autism puzzle.
