2015 Autism Symposium

The 10th Annual Symposium is set - November 5, 2015

The date and roster of program speakers for the 2015 Rockland Autism Symposium are finalized. Back again for the 10th consecutive year, the upcoming schedule promises to stand up to the high standards of the past 9 years.  With a few more details to be ironed out, the current roster of speakers include:

  • Marsha R Mailick - PhD, Brandeis University
    Interim Vaughan Bascom and Elizabeth M. Boggs Professor
  • Peter Pierri, XD - NY Interagency Council, 
    Executive Director of the Interagency Council of Developmental Disabilities Agencies,
  • Dr. Alexander Kolevzon - Mt. Sinai Hospital 
    Associate Professor Psychiatry and Pediatrics
  • Paul A. Offit, MD - Pediatrician and Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases and the
    Director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

  • Joseph Buxbaum PhD, Professor Psychiatry and Principal Investigator at the 
    Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Laboratory of Molecular Neuropsychiatry


Online registration will open around the middle of September, so please check back by September 10th to see the actual times and dates. For those that are not aware, this is an extremely popular seminar and the seats are filled unbelievably quickly.  For example, last year's 2014 Online Registration opened at 12:00:01 AM on September 19th and closed at 7:17 AM on September 19th with 650 people registered. (And, there were 246 people on the waiting list.)

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.  

As always, 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.

Please check the Program Page for the topics and the Speakers Page for the list of those that will be presenting at the 2014 Symposium. and check back soon for any content updates.
