Lang: Mary Joann Lang

A Beacon Towards Healing! focuses on principles and values that will enhance the quality of life for children, adolescents and adults with Autism. The program will focus on several areas, including education, therapies, and emerging issues that will help parents and service providers better understand and implement paths to success. The program will cover a broad range of topics in order to address the array of challenges that the individual with Autism, the family and the community face everyday.

The first in the series will introduce the program host, Mary Joann Lang, founder and director of Beacon Day School and Beacon Autism Spectrum Independence Center (BASIC), in Orange, California. Later programs will introduce staff and service providers who will speak on a variety of issues. Another goal of the program will be on understanding the integration of thinking, learning and behavior for individuals with Autism. In addition, the programs will generally take a developmental perspective, given that there are significant issues at each stage of life that require attention and change.
