As I have previously mentioned, in May the Maine CDC held a one day conference on Autism. The videos of the conference will be available on the Maine CDC web site, however Maine state law requires that they be ADA compliant before going up, and the process of close captioning the videos is proving to be time consuming. So in my impatience, I am uploading my copies of the videos (with permission from Maine CDC who is encouraging their free circulation.)
Conference materials available here on the Maine CDC web site.
Those who would like a set of DVD's of the conference, for yourself, your organization or to pass along to doctors and public health officials, email me.
