A ground-breaking conference dedicated to providing information on strength-based approaches informed by the latest neuroscience.
The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens

Friday, March 31 – Saturday, April 1, 2017
This conference presents a paradigm shift from a disability perspective to approaches that value individual differences. Come join us to hear from neurodiverse individuals, ground-breaking authors and scientists who will help us see the difference between responses to stress (safety vs. threat) and what are commonly thought of as “disorders” and/or challenging behaviors. Through keynotes and in- depth case presentations, this thought provoking and inspirational conference will detail ways to support and presume competence in mental health and autism treatment across the lifespan.
