I attended a Los Angeles Conference several years ago where Stephen Shore was a key-note speaker and learned a great deal by watching and listening to him. If you plan on attending the Autism Summer Institute, I suggest perusing his book, Beyond the Wall beforehand to gain further insight into living with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
