Ask the Experts Panel

The Ask the Experts panel provides an opportunity for family members and professionals to ask questions to a panel of autism experts. Our experts represent a variety of fields including medicine, behavior analysis, education, occupational and speech therapy, and psychology.

The Ask the Experts Panel focuses on addressing a wide variety of questions including:

  • What does a diagnosis of autism mean for my child?
  • Is there a cure or treatment for autism?
  • What are some strategies and resources to help with my child’s behavior?
  • How does an autism diagnosis impact my child’s education?
  • My child is older-when should I start thinking about adulthood and transition from high school?
  • What other medical considerations should I be aware of?

Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask additional questions during the event.
