Michigan Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley will visit Auburn Hills in May to speak about Autism. OUCARES, the Oakland University Center for Autism Research, Education and Support, will be hosting Calley as the keynote speaker at the OUCARES Quality of Life Symposium.

"We are honored to have the Lieutenant Governor be our keynote speaker at this year's Quality Of Life Symposium. His support and insight regarding improving the quality of life for those impacted by ASD is welcomed by OUCARES, both as our Lieutenant Governor and as a father of a child with autism," OUCARES Director, Kathy Sweeney said.

Calley has supported efforts to ensure that children with Autism Spectrum Disorder are able to receive insurance coverage for treatment.

Calley is joined by others who are experts in the field of Autism, including Peter Gerhardt from the Organization for Autism Research, Gail Hawkins of the Hawkins Institute, and Ann Turnbull from the University of Kansas.

The fourth annual OUCARES Quality of Life Symposium focuses on quality of life issues related to employment and residential living for individuals with ASD. The symposium will be held May 7 and 8 at the Marriott Auburn Hills.
