The Politics of Autism–What’s new in 2012?

Friday, May 25th Grand Ballroom 12:45-1:15 pm

Please attend this important 30-minute political briefing hosted by the Canary Party and EBCALA.

Mark Blaxill will add to his April 2nd presentation from the “1 in 88” press conference, which detailed the most current CDC prevalence rates. Mark will also speak about the dangers of redefining autism using the new DSM V criteria which may end up erasing the autism epidemic as we now know it.

Ginger Taylor will look at the epic failure of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) in the past and highlight why the newly appointed members will most likely keep the same failed trajectory.

Rebecca Estepp will examine the executive branch of the federal government and why more lobbying needs to be pointed towards the President. She will review how executive branch decisions made decades ago are now affecting our community. And most importantly, Rebecca will call for making autism and vaccine safety critical issues in the 2012 presidential election.
