    IRVINE, CA, April 22, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Moms Fighting Autism and Autism College are partnering up to offer a free virtual conference on Saturday April 26th and Sunday April 27th from 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM PST. This year's theme is: Autism from Adolescence to Adulthood, Preparing for Independence and Growth. Keynote speaker Chantal Sicile-Kira, author of five award-winning books on autism, will be speaking on Preparing for the Transition to Adulthood. Speakers include: Brian King, author of Strategies for Building Successful Relationships with People on the Autism Spectrum, who will speak on "Building a Support Community for Interdependence and Growth;" Wendy Partridge, Executive Director of Heroes of the Game, Inc., speaking on "Work Incentives Planning and Assistance - Taking the next step on your Employment Journey", and Marguerite Cohn, Transitions Program Supervisor of the Rebecca School in New York.

"The transition to adult life can be a rude awakening for parents as well as the young adult," said autism expert and founder of AutismCollege.com, Chantal Sicile-Kira. "The unemployment rate for adults with autism is very high, and we can do a better job of preparing them during their school years. Listening to these speakers is a great way to get empowered with the information parents need to know."

We know that parents and professionals don't always have the ability to attend conferences due to time, geographical location, or finances, and hope you'll consider joining us virtually. Registration is completely free, and attendees can use their computers or smartphones to both listen to the talks as well as post questions live to the presenters.

"In honor of Autism Awareness month, I want to provide free practical information on autism to all who need it," said Ernest Priestly, Founder of MomsFightingAutism.com. "For many parents, it is difficult to leave home to attend conferences. A virtual conference is the best way for moms, dads, grandparents and teachers to get information they need without leaving their home. I'm glad I can help make their lives a little easier."
