Autism awareness in Clear Lake

CLEAR LAKE, Iowa – “It’s about time that we have something like this in Mason City, Clear Lake.”

Parents of autistic children are gathering in Clear Lake today to take advantage of the latest seminar offered by the Children’s Autism Center.

The center has been open for less than a year but has attracted both families and medical professionals to learn from their various programs.

Saturday’s seminar featured a behavior analyst who talked to the group about the many different options for treatment.

“What kinds of interventions and strategies should families be looking at or using in terms of looking at kids with autism and how to make those decision when there’s all kinds of treatment out there, there’s all kinds of strategies that are available to families,” says Dr. Kemmerer.

Besides the families, many medical professionals attended the seminar to learn about the latest evidence based practices that are available.
