AUTISM BRAINSTORM: 
Child Advocacy and the Miller Method® with Rebecca Sperber


The focus of the hangout will center on child advocacy:  it's challenges, the mechanics of how to do it, and the desired outcomes.

The Miller Method will be incorporated into the discussion to create real life examples of how to advocate for a specific method or approach to teaching or treating a particular child with autism.

Mindsets and skills sets for parents to acquire will be explained and discussed by panel members ranging from parents, teachers, therapists and clinicians.  Each panel member will discuss their personal experience with the Miller Method and their experiences with how to advocate for its efficacy to parents, shools and clinical settings.

AUTISM BRAINSTORM: Guy Talk with Dr. Robert Naseef


Sunday, June 14, Guy Talk will focus on how fathers of children with autism and special needs can appreciate and honor their own mothers and the devoted mothers of their children.  Setting aside a day to honor mothers is important, but true gratitude requires expression beyond flowers, cards, and going out to eat. A mother’s love is boundless, and this is a time to reflect on our sweetest memories of women as mothers and grandmothers. Beyond honoring the woman who raised him, the most important thing a father can do for his children is to love and appreciate their mother. Our special contributor is James May, the former director of the National Fathers Network. Although now retired, his contributions to the special needs community live on through the Washington State Fathers Network. James will share his wisdom and appreciation for women derived from many years of service to the special needs community around the country. James has a special perspective as he grew up with special health care needs.
