ASF Day of Learning and Evening of Celebration
On April 22, 2015, the Autism Science Foundation held its second annual Day of Learning & Evening of Celebration. The event included the autism community’s second annual TED-style science conference, featuring thoughtful, 15-minute distillations of critical issues in autism and mental health. Speakers focused on the real issues facing families, such as gender differences in diagnosis and treatment, genetic testing, adult outcomes, caring for the caregivers, the effectiveness of workplace interventions, and the challenges of communicating science to the public.
