2013 Autism Symposium

8th Annual Symposium is set - October 24, 2013

The date and initial roster of program speakers for the 2013 Rockland Autism Symposium are identified but still being finalized. Back again for the 8th consecutive year, the upcoming schedule promises to be up to the high standards of the past 7 years.  With a few more details to be ironed out, the current roster of speakers include:

  • Joshua John Diehl, Ph.D
  • Gina Zecchin-Tirri
  • James T. Chok, Ph.D.
  • Jill Harper, Ph.D.

You can learn a little bit about them and their topics on the 2013 Speakers Page.


The opening date for Online Registration for the 2013 RAS was September 23, 2013.  As has become the culture the event registration sold out within hours.  You can still sign up to the Wait List by clicking here .

As usual, those that have attended before or signed onto our newsletter or waiting list received an email declaring when the online registration will in fact be open.   For first timers, the ONLY way to register for this event is to use the simple and easy online registration process - there is no mail in or call-in registration process.  FYI, like last year we opened, filled the 575 slots and closed the registration within a few hours; while that may sound unreal, it is in fact the truth. 

Many thanks to our premier sponsors, Inna and Josh Needleman of Mindworks; it is due to their generous support that we can once again offer attendance at no charge.

2012 Symposium

The 7th Annual RAS was presented to a packed house enraptured by the offerings of a wide array of leaders in the field of Autism! Starting off with Dr. Jill Locke, Ph.D. and followed by Dr. Paul J. Lombroso, MD, Dr. David Mandell Sc.D, Adriana DiMartino, MD and Dr. James McPartland, Ph.D.

As has become expected, the day was truly superb! These luminaries offered non-stop experiential insights and educational viewpoints that made the 2012 program one of the best symposium offerings yet.

Please check the Program Page for the topics and the Speakers Page for the list of those that will be presenting at the 2013 Symposium. and check back soon for any content updates.
