  • Denver, CO (1888PressRelease) September 30, 2011 - Autism advocate and motivational speaker Joe Mohs will serve as a keynote speaker at the CARD Colorado Autism Conference held on on Saturday, October 8, at the University of Denver. The conference is hosted by the Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), one of the world's largest organizations treating children with state-of-the-art therapy.

    Mohs has dedicated his life to spreading autism awareness and giving families of children with autism living proof that autism is treatable and recovery is possible.

    "I want to let parents know that there is hope," says Mohs. I recovered from autism because my parents never gave up hope. They were determined to find therapy - when little information was available, and almost all hope was lost."

    When Mohs was treated for autism twenty-three years ago, an estimated one out of every 2,000 children was diagnosed with the disorder. Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports one in 110 children in America is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined.

    Parents and practitioners who attend the CARD Colorado Autism Conference will learn about the most effective autism interventions, strategies to effectively address challenging behaviors as well as learn about hands-on, groundbreaking technology that parents can use to assess and treat their child's developmental disorders.

    The CARD Colorado Autism Conference will also feature autism experts CARD Executive Director Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh on "Creating a Comprehensive and Individualized Treatment Program for a Child with Autism Spectrum Disorders," Dr. Jonathan Tarbox on "Practical Solutions for Addressing Challenging Behaviors," Dr. Adel Najdowski on "Skills: A Web-based Tool for Effectively Treating Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders," and Bryce Miler on "Colorado Autism Insurance."
