International Autism Conference Presents Cutting-Edge Research and Treatment Approaches

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Mar 25, 2013) - A recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that 1 in 50 school-age children are diagnosed with autism. Roughly 1 million children ages 6 to 17 face formidable challenges in communication, behavior, and social interaction. On June 5th, 2013, ICare4Autism, the International Center for Autism Research & Education, is gathering leading clinicians and researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in conjunction with Montefiore Medical Center, who will participate in a conference in 2 tracks: Bio-Medical and Education-Behavioral Research and Practice. The conference has one critically important mission: to present cutting-edge research on autism and catalyze groundbreaking treatment approaches.

The annual, cross-disciplinary conference defines the conversation on promising treatment and educational initiatives, synthesizing cutting-edge research from leading institutions, laying the groundwork for effective educational approaches in schools, and presenting the most recent findings from the world's top practitioners, as autism prevalence increases.
