Power Point Presentation By: Raun K. Kaufman

Mr. Kaufman will provide concrete, bold strategies parents can implement now for
a child on the autism spectrum’s immediate gain. He focuses on innovative, outside-
the-box techniques from The Son-Rise Program that you can use today to help
your children: move beyond stimming (without you stopping or discouraging your
child’s behavior),
learn new skills (without you having to push or pressure), and, most
to form meaningful, caring relationships with others.

Brain Function and Behavior in Autism?
This lecture examines the possible role of infectious agents in the causes and
of neurodevelopmental disorders, with ASD as a key focus. It discusses
the effects of a series of infectious and dietary agents of increasing incidence that
are capable
of inducing brain changes and behaviors (i.e. aggression, hyperactivity,
obsessive compulsive behavior, social impairment, sensory sensitivity) in humans and
experimental animals. Dr.

Laurette Janak

Power Point Presentation.

The prevalence of autism within the Down syndrome population vastly exceeds that
seen in the general population. In this talk Laurette Janak, a mother of a child who
has Down syndrome, leukemia, and is on the spectrum, will present data on the ways
in which the genetically based biochemistry of Down syndrome can make them more
sensitive to exposures to environmental toxins. Information can be learned from this
high-risk group that can be applied to autism within the general population.


Power Point Presentations By: Jill James PhD.

Dr. James will present for the first time the metabolic and behavioral results of a 3
month open label clinical intervention trial testing the efficacy of methylcobalamin and
folinic acid in children diagnosed with autism. She will also discuss the design of an
on-going NIH-funded prospective study that will determine whether reduced methylation
and glutathione-mediated antioxidant/detoxification capacity precedes the diagnosis
of autism.


Power Point Presentation By: Devin Houston, PhD.

Ten years ago, any discussion about enzymes and autism was practically non-existent.
Now there is so much information about enzymes that the average person can feel
overwhelmed trying to understand it all. Devin Houston, PhD, will present an overview
of enzymes and their actions in nurturing the gut environment, as well as explaining how
enzymes can be an adjunct or even an alternative to some restrictive diets.


Power Point Presentation By: David L. Holmes, EdD.

There is much controversy regarding the rights of adults with autism to receive services
after the school bus stops coming. This presentation will address the difference
“entitlement” and “eligibility”, when adults languish on waiting lists. It will
address numerous legal maneuvers used to move beyond the “waiting list” and get
services. Case studies will be presented where legal remedies to the “stand at the end
of the line” response have been successful in achieving services for adults with autism.


Power Point Presentation By: Jennifer Jacobs, M.S. CCC-SLP.

Learn about the new methods of teaching social skills to children and adolescents with
ASD and other language learning disorders. Discuss research and review case studies
of individuals, from preschool through high school, who have made outstanding gains
in social language and behavior. Understand how to easily implement techniques and
motivate students to carry over skills into their daily lives.


Article Presented By: Martha Herbert MD,PhD.

As autism comes to be appreciated as a set of whole body environmentally modulated
and treatable complex systems conditions, we need to re-think how research can best
contribute to improving outcomes and expanding options in autism. Complexity is also
overtaking simple models in many other domains, so that the 20th century quest for
precision and certainty will be unachievable in the 21st century except by ignoring
this complexity. Yet thinking about standards suitable for complex data is only in its


Power Point Presentation By: John Hicks, MD.

As a pediatrician, Dr. John Hicks reveals his journey from the traditional medical
model, through the expanding world of quantum medicine. In this hour, explore the
unfolding in the body’s natural use of quantum physics through both health and
All systems are interrelated and interdependent, therefore there is a specific
pattern towards each individual’s healing journey.
