Goals of the Seminar
After receiving the diagnosis of autism for a beloved child (or
children), parents typically struggle as they search through various
resources to locate information needed to help their child the fastest.
The goal of the one-day Autism Journey orientation is to provide parents
and caretakers the ³jump start² they need at the beginning of their
journey from parents who have ³been there, done that.² In addition to
sage advice, parents who attend will receive: an overview of beginning
therapies and biomedical intervention, where to go for what information,
and recommended first steps. The seminar will be given by experienced
parents who volunteer their time in providing the education new parents
Who should Attend?
This one-day seminar is geared for parents and caretakers of children
affected by autism. Content will be provided in an overview
presentation with web and book resource information for additional
details. This seminar is geared to parents and caretakers new to the
autism journey (less than 15 months) who have not yet started a
behavioral/educational program or biomedical testing and interventions.

The future of autism recovery begins now! 

We are thrilled to bring you the, “Autism Recovery on a Budget: Empowering Parents,” conference registration for FREE.

Recovery depends on education, not on how thick your wallet is. But first you need to know how to help your child. You need to know the most effective treatments and therapies. You need to know when certain interventions are appropriate and when they are not. You need to know hope is real.
It’s time to open not only our hearts, but our home. And so it is with open arms we invite you to come and share with the AutismOne family what we have learned collectively over the past decade. It’s time to embrace every family affected.
Currently constructed autism costs too much. One of the biggest obstacles to recovering children has always been the cost of educating parents. We believe answers need to be free.
Each year we learn how to do more with less and each year the conference is a reflection of the ever-growing body of accumulated knowledge.
Each year we learn more about how to prevent autism or minimize its effect. Each year we learn more about dealing with autism in adolescence and adulthood. Each year we learn more about the underlying biomedical issues at work.
This year we will have the chance to share with you what we have learned whether you are a woman thinking about having a child or a parent with a child aging out of the school system or a mom facing autism for the first time.
This year we will help you learn about taking care of yourself. For the first time, this year, we will train practitioners to implement the biomedical mission of care.
This year we will train more attorneys to fight for you and first responders to help protect your family. This year we will train more students to assist your child, advocates to challenge the system, teachers to educate your child, and professionals to embrace recovery.
This year we welcome parents who have not had the opportunity to learn what they must to help the ones they love the most.
We will teach you, we will guide you and provide you with the tools and education and together we will begin the journey of recovery.
– Ed and Teri Arranga, conference directors and parents to Jarad and Ian.

Autism Sticker Shock: How Can I Afford It?
After the shock of diagnosis, one of the first thoughts parents have is, “I will spend whatever it takes to help my child.” It’s understandable, but not the most helpful reaction. In fact, it can work against you.    
Every parent worries about costs. It’s the silent alarm that goes off whenever a treatment is considered. How much does it cost? Can I afford it?      
Yes You Can!    
You may think that the treatments your child needs must be expensive to be good.  We often mistakenly believe how much we spend directly relates to how much we can help our children.
Lay down your fears. From palate to poops costs do not dictate quality. We’ll show you how to provide the best treatments without costing you an arm and a leg.
