~~~~Autism Awareness Month~~~~
Show your spectrum of colors!!!

These events deal with therapeutic interventions {dietary, animal aided, teaching modalities, etc.}, allergies, legal issues, support, advocacy, conferences, fund raising and family fun. Additionally, I have decided to broaden the spectrum of events that I include on this page. Since our lives involve more than special needs, and it is vital that we take are of ourselves in order to be effective caregivers, in addition to Autism and special needs events, I am including self enrichment, LOA, and spiritual events as well. Some prominent speakers/facilitators include: Dr. Daniel Amen, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr. Temple Grandin, Carol Gray, Louise Hay, Robert Holden, Ph.D., Barry Neil Kaufman, Caroline Myss, Cheryl Richardson, William Shaw, Ph.D , Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Kurt Woeller, etc.
This is a preliminary list of events. If you have any events to share, please post them in the comment section of this blog and I will add them.
SPECIAL NOTE: The AutismOne Conference is coming up in May, but you must registrar early if you want to have your child included in the child care provided at the conference. Additionally, The Seeing Eye, guide dog charity, is now accepting donations of items to be sold during their online auction that begins April 23rd.

Date(s) Location Event
NOW Internet 12 for 2012 for Autism Scholarships
In the US, having a child with Autism has many financial and emotional challenges, however in some countries the culture deems children with Autism as a “curse” and their lives are constantly endangered because of this belief. Just think of the global impact of parents and child care professionals being able to bring to such countries, knowledge and understanding of those with Autism. The Son-Rise Program taught by the Autism Treatment Center of America, has helped over 25,000 Autism families from more than 80 countries globally, and was awarded the title of “Best Autism Therapy Tool” at the 2011 AutismOne Conference. Please make a tax deductible donation of least $12 dollars now and share this information with at least 12 people. In the “Please use my donation for:” section, please copy and paste, “Son-Rise Program Scholarships [12for2012]“. You can literally help change the world! To donate go to: http://www.autismtreatmentcenter.org/document.php?sectionid=7&documentid=52

April 23-May 2 Internet The Seeing Eye 2012 Online Auction
From the Seeing Eye Frequently Asked Questions page: “How much does a Seeing Eye dog cost?”
“Students pay $150 for their first dog and $50 for each successor dog.” I am profoundly impressed that they provide these dogs for such a low cost to those who need their guidance, in my opinion, it is a testament to Seeing Eye’s exemplary use of donations. Inspiring!
