Mark your Calendars: Autism Expo returns to Raleigh

Posted January 27, 2014

Using new research techniques, doctors at UNC Hospitals are coming closer to answering a key question about autism spectrum disorder - when does it begin?

The All About Autism Expo, which first stopped in Raleigh last  March, will return to the N.C. State Fairgrounds on April 5 and April 6.

The event offers information and discussion about autism for families - from the initial diagnosis through adulthood. Organizer Michele Swing tells me that there also will be more activities and demonstrations for kids and adults. Childcare will be available, along with an added child ID station. Part of the proceeds will go to help local families with activities for those with autism. 

"The response and feedback received from the families that attended last year was very positive and I am happy to be bringing this event back to the area for families and professionals to come to and find out about different therapies, schools, and other tools to help them," Swing tells me in an email. "It is also an opportunity to network with other families or professionals."

A special early bird admission price is $10. Check the website for more about the event.
