Delivering ‘Real World’ Science at Autism Speaks National Conference

Posted by Autism Speaks Vice President for Clinical Programs Clara Lajonchere. Dr. Lajonchere was the chair of the organizing committee for Autism Speaks’ 2013 National Conference for Families and Professionals, held in Columbus, Ohio, this past weekend.


Countdown to the Conference: A Community of Support

Deona Foust is a volunteer involved in Walk Now for Autism Speaks in New Mexico. She is a sub-contractor for Stimulating Minds, an innovative autism clinic that provides all services for those with autism under one roof. Deona also provides ABA therapy and help with social skills groups. Deona calls her most important qualification the fact that she is a mom of a 10 year-old, Shelton, with autism, as well as three other children.
