Free books will inspire and empower parents toward healthful steps for child and family.

...there is hope when you learn of appropriate interventions done correctly -- never give up -- seek the right answers that will help your child.

Cutting-edge doctors and researchers are looking forward to the AutismOne/Focus for Health 2015 Conference because of the opportunities to present and grow ideas to help children with autism. This year’s conference will highlight parents of recovered children, who will be there to support attendees. One such parent, Mary Romaniec, will debut her book Victory over Autism: Practical Steps and Wisdom toward Recovery for the Whole Family. Free copies of Victory over Autism will be available to parents at the new parent mixer and more. According to Mary: “Many years ago I attended the first AutismOne Conference (and many others since then) because it was an opportunity to learn the latest information from those leading the way in research, treatment, therapies, and legal issues. Victory over Autism was brought about with a shared philosophy of inspiring and empowering the next parent to begin taking the steps toward health and well-being for their child and family."

Victory over Autism publisher Skyhorse Publishing also produces the Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism book series. Said Tony Lyons, president of Skyhorse Publishing, “We are delighted to be working with AutismOne to provide Mary Romaniec’s upcoming book, Victory over Autism, at the 2015 conference in Chicago. This conference embodies what we believe about presenting an ever-fresh, comprehensive, cutting-edge assortment of information to parents. Mary’s book is a perfect fit because she has taken the wisdom she’s accumulated over many years of successfully helping her own son and other families and placed it into a book to bring essential insights. The conference and Mary’s book will inspire and motivate parents.”

Marcia Hinds, author of I Know You’re In There, will also be on-hand to help parents. “Autism is treatable,” said this author and mother to a recovered son who now works for an aerospace company. Marcia was told when her son was diagnosed at age 4 that he would likely need to be institutionalized in the future. Today, Marcia’s son is a systems engineer and liaison between the company and airlines, signaling good social and communication skills. A retired teacher, Marcia’s greatest message to parents is that “there is hope when you learn of appropriate interventions done correctly -- never give up -- seek the right answers that will help your child.”

Health coach Beth Secosky appreciated the education she received: “I love attending biomed autism conferences. AutismOne is one of my favorites. Last year was my first time at AutismOne. Even though I've been on this biomed journey for 5 years now, I was exposed to many new ideas and treatment options. However, I think my favorite thing last year was meeting an 11-year-old girl who is totally recovered and 4 or 5 teens and adults who are totally recovered. When I say ‘totally recovered,’ I'm saying -- not just typical -- but higher functioning than most people. It reinforced my conviction that my son is going to go from ‘recovered’ to ‘totally recovered.’"

With over 150 speakers, whether you’re starting, seasoned, or savvy, the AutismOne/Focus for Health 2015 Conference has something for you.

The AutismOne/Focus for Health 2015 Conference will be held at the beautiful Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel (5300 N. River Road, Rosemont, IL 60018) from May 20-24. Register at http://www.autismone.org, or call 1.800.908.5803 for more information. For a brief video preview, click here.
