Welcome to Autism Fundraising Guide. I focus on therapies, treatment, advice, trends and personal anecdotes based upon my experience as a parent of a sixteen year old with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I have seen this disorder go from relatively obscure when my child was diagnosed thirteen years ago, to a very maintream epidemic today.

Best Therapies for Autism Day Four

Good Morning and welcome to Day 4 of our series entitled "Best Therapies for Autism."
Today's focus is on the DAN! Conference and the importance of having a DAN! Doctor.

DAN! Doctor and DAN! Conference

What is DAN! DAN! stands for Defeat Autism Now and it is a conference put on by the Autism Research Institute (ARI) organization that has two conferences a year. The DAN! website is located at http://www.defeatautismnow.com/. What is so great about this website is that there is a database where parents can located a DAN! physician. All the parent has to do is type in what state they reside in and then the website will direct you to doctors specially trained in the DAN! protocol.

The conferences that DAN! has every year are about the best new medical treatments for Autism Spectrum Disorder and children with Autism. The conference is open to both parents and professionals. For a parent to attend one of these conferences is very beneficial. It is the single best way of staying abreast of the latest medical and technological advances in Autism Spectrum Disorder. Parents should definitely attend these conferences in order to best help their child.

The upcoming conferences are as follows:

FALL 2010 Long Beach, California October 7-10, 2010
SPRING 2011 Atlanta, Georgia April 28-May 1, 2011
