are proud to announce the most comprehensive
autism conference ever assembled.

Chicago, Illinois: Monday, May 24 - Sunday, May 30

Autism Redefined 2010

We are joining forces with Generation Rescue to present the most comprehensive autism conference ever assembled and we could not be more proud of the upcoming eighth annual event.

A few of the highlights include:

  • Over 150 speakers; 7 days of presentations, seminars, think tanks, and professional training
  • 6 tracks offering specific answers to help children and families immediately
  • Jenny McCarthy Keynote
  • Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law & Advocacy Legal Training
  • American Human Rights Rally
  • Student Scholars for Autism Program
  • Presentations too groundbreaking to announce beforehand

The conference is more than speakers and presentations. It’s a special time when the autism community comes together and shares what we have learned and where we are going. It addresses your concerns and hopes for the future and it happens once a year in Chicago. When the best and brightest doctors, researchers, scientists and educators meet the best and brightest parents and affected children and good things happen. Our children get better.

Together we will redefine autism as a biomedical condition that can be treated and prevented. The past has been unkind to autism. The future is ours. We’ll see you in Chicago.


This year the conference increases to 7 days. The conference had been five days: Wednesday through Sunday. Wednesdays and Thursdays were mainly devoted to day-long topics. Friday through Sunday comprised the main conference. This is still generally true for 2010.

But over time we found it necessary to add speakers and topics to both the pre- and main-conference days and still too many important topics were not given the attention they deserved.

Monday and Tuesday (May 24 & 25) are new conference days and for 2010 will mostly be devoted to a new initiative called "Student Scholars for Autism" we are developing, art, and some advocacy training.

Moving to a week-long event allows us to be in a position to more easily accommodate the needs we face now and in the future.

We’d like to hear from you. If you’d like to hold a local autism or related meeting on Monday or Tuesday at the Westin O’Hare we would be delighted to provide your group the meeting space. Or if you know of a topic we need to address please share your ideas with us – email

Many thanks to our kind sponsors:
