FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 13 Back in Florida for a second year in a row, The National Autism Conference (NAC), hosted by the National Autism Association, will bring together top experts to share the latest trends, topics, treatments and therapies surrounding the fastest growing neurodevelopmental disorder in the country.

This year, presenters will cover everything from cutting-edge research to biomedical treatments, dietary interventions, therapies, apraxia, children's rights and marital coaching. Speakers include Dr. Andrew Wakefield, Dr. Martha Herbert, Dr. Dan Rossignol, Dr. Susan Swedo, Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, Dr. Russell Blaylock, Dr. Jerry Kartzinel, author David Kirby, and long-time advocate Barbara Loe Fisher.

The conference lineup also features a lecture by Soma Mukhopadhyay, developer of the Rapid Prompting Method technique of teaching individuals with autism. Soma, also known as Tito's Mom, has garnered the attention of the international media with the success of her unique and effective teaching methods.

A new feature this year is the discounted companion pass. Attendees can bring their spouse, therapists, friends, co-workers or family members to the conference for a special rate of $125.

Sponsored by OxyHealth, LLC, the NAC spans four days and will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Weston, Florida from November 12th through the 15th. A tropical resort setting, the Hyatt Regency is an environmentally friendly hotel that allows attendees well-earned time for relaxation.

The conference will also offer special events, such as a free screening of Autism Made In the USA with Film Producer Gary Null and the annual Life's a Beach dinner party. Free food items and beverages will be available throughout the conference to help make this an affordable event for families.
