6th Annual Working Together Conference, NY Academy of Medicine

Working Together: Systems and Strategies for Improving Outcomes for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders

New York Academy of Medicine, 1216 Fifth Avenue, NYC
March 28th and 29th, 2008

Full program can be seen at

This is always a very good conference, with a nationally recognized speaker in the morning, and local practitioners talking about aspects of behavioral programs for parents and professionals. NYAM is also a great location that is actually condusive to learning and networking.

This year's AM presenter is Robert Schwartz, a neuroscientist from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, who is conducting MRI studies of ASD and controls while performing social tasks, as well as a treatment study.

Some parents I know have found this program too technical in past years, but overall I think it is of consistently very good quality and a mix of stuff I can use with stuff I can merely think about.
