Give Autism a Chance Summit 2015 will be a one day summit addressing the needs of living with autism. The summit will be comprised of panels of experts in their fields. Each panel discussion will include an interactive question and answer session with the audience. The panels will include:
Siblings
Top British psychologist Dr. Carol Stott will lead this panel, and will discuss with siblings of all ages what it is like living with a sibling with Autism Spectrum Disorder. 
General Concerns
Polly Tommey, Founder of The Autism Trust, will talk with an extensive panel about everyday concerns, including puberty, education, marriage, home schooling, and our rights as parents.
Autism Is Medical  (AIM)
Jeanna Reed, Founder of AIM, will head a strong panel including a human rights lawyer. This discussion will center around the medical aspects of autism, and our rights as parents when taking our children to a hospital.
The Thinking Moms’ Revolution
Lead by Michelle Schneider, this panel will discuss how we as parents can get involved to force much needed change for our children with autism, and their future.
Health Panel
Jonathan Tommey and Barry Smeltzer will get together with other experts to discuss the wellness of our children. Are behaviors lead by the food we eat? Can diet and supplementation really help our children improve their quality of life?
The Media Blackout and the CDC Whistleblower
Andrew Wakefield will take us through the spiral of events surrounding the CDC Whistleblower, with Alex Jones, Brian Hooker, Congressman Dave Weldon, and Clark Baker, amongst others.
The Future and Working Together as a Team
Leaders of autism organizations will show how we as a community can prepare for the future of our children affected by autism.
Tickets are limited, but every attendee will receive a complimentary GF/CF/Soy free breakfast and lunch, and bags hand made by people with autism. 
Please go to www.theautismtrust.org to reserve your tickets. We really look forward to meeting everyone and working together as a team!
