The conference, organized by Los Ninos Services, and sponsored by the Graduate School of Education, brings together top leaders to provide the latest information about essential topics in early childhood development. Early childhood professionals and parents will also learn about services, resources and products to help all children reach their full potential. In one unique event, this conference integrates learning about typically developing children as well as those with special needs, including autism.
At the Young Child Expo & Conference, GSE Dean James Hennessy will present the Excellence in Early Childhood Award, which recognizes early childhood professionals who are extraordinary champions and advocates for young children and their families. The recipient of the the 2011 award will be Dr. Ami Klim (Director, Autism Program, Yale University) for his groundbreaking research in early assessment of autism. Dr. Klim will also be the keynote speaker.
