AHA/Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism Association will hold its annual spring conference on Saturday, May 1, 2010 at Adelphi University in Garden City, New York.  John Elder Robison, best-selling author of his 2007 memoir Look Me in the Eye: My Life With Asperger’s is the featured keynote speaker for the conference.

The conference theme is “Issues in Independent Living for Adolescents and Adults on the Autism Spectrum” with a mission to increase awareness of the countless challenges and difficulties individuals on the autism spectrum face as adults and to assist in their independence. The conference will focus on establishing effective systems of supports and services from transition through adulthood.

The conference invites educators, professionals, family members and individuals on the Autism Spectrum to join in the activities which include workshops, panels, bookstore, agencies and resources throughout the day. More information is on the AHANY.org web site.
