All Kinds of News for April 05, 2017
The Help Group’s Advance LA (www.advancela.org) and Dr. Holly Daniels are proud to host this one-of-a kind conference, which offers sessions focusing on the needs of transitional age young adults with autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), executive functioning difficulties, learning differences and mental health issues including dual diagnosis. This event will be on Friday, May 5th, 2016.
The keynote speaker, Dr. Amy Banks, author of Four Ways to Click: Rewire Your Brain for Stronger, More Rewarding Relationships, along with other nationally-renowned experts in their respective fields, will address this year's theme of CONNECTION. Young people with diverse challenges have the same need for connection and belonging as their typical peers, even though their neurodevelopmental differences might keep them from experiencing fulfilling connections intellectually and interpersonally. This conference will adress ways to encourage and guide our young adults as they connect to themselves, to others, and to their academic and vocational pursuits.
Presentation topics include: • Career Opportunities and Job Skills for Emerging Adults with Neuro-Differences • Electronics Use – How Much Is Too Much? • The Dating World for Young Adults with Autism and Neuro-Differences • Mindfulness Support for our Clients and Ourselves • Co-Occurring Complications with Substance Abuse and Autism, ADHD • LGBTQAI Issues for our Neuro-Diverse Young Adults and much more!
Some of the speakers include Dr. Don Grant, Dr. Elisha Goldstein, Dr. Carol Schall, Dr. Jessica Romeyn, Dr. Kevin Pelphrey, Dr. Teri Solochek, Dr. Julie Lounds Taylor just to name a few.
The Advance LA Conference is open to educators, clinicians, researchers, parents, graduate and undergraduate students. Continuing education credits will be available.
