CHICAGO, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Once a year, families affected by autism come to Chicago to attend the largest and most comprehensive conference on autism in the country.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., will deliver the keynote address Friday, May 24. " We could not be more thrilled," says Laura Rowley, of AutismOne." Mr. Kennedy is a hero and a champion to millions of Americans. He is a man of uncompromised values and his upcoming presentation fills me with a sense of hope and joy."

Kennedy brings to Chicago powerful and compelling new information to share with the community. His involvement comes at a watershed time when new figures released by the CDC indicate 1-in-50 school-age children have autism.

Congressional Panel: Congressmen Dan Burton, Dave Weldon, MD, and Bill Posey

During his 30 years in Congress, many of them as Chairman of the Committee on Government Reform, Burton was involved in over 20 hearings on autism. Burton's grandson developed autism after receiving 9 vaccines on the same day. His pursuit of truth and passionate leadership helped define and inspire the modern autism movement.

Dr. Weldon retired after 14 years in Congress, where he was a founding member of the Congressional Autism Caucus. He spent years working with leaders in the autism community to discover any factors that contribute to its occurrence as well as explore all available research into its prevention, including removing thimerosal from vaccines.
