Autism Society of Indiana’s Winter Conference
will be January 15 at the Monon Center, Carmel.
Our speaker will be the internationally acclaimed Dr. Stephen Shore presenting “Life On and Slightly to the Right of the Autism Spectrum: An Inside View for Success". Diagnosed with "Atypical Development with strong autistic tendencies" Dr. Shore was viewed as "too sick" to be treated on an outpatient basis and recommended for institutionalization. Nonverbal until four, and with much help from his parents, teachers, and others, Stephen completed his doctoral dissertation at Boston University focused on matching best practice to the needs of people on the autism spectrum. Recently, Dr. Shore has accepted a professorship at Adelphi University teaching courses in special education and autism. Save the date and stay tuned for details.

Should you tell your child he is on the autism spectrum? In this short video, Stephen Shore talks about disclosure and helps parents make decisions when talking to their kids.
