Worldwide the number of people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders is rising. A primary challenge related to this epidemic is the lack of professionals trained to support these individuals. The Profectum Foundation is a newly formed international non-profit organization based in Mendham, New Jersey. Founded in 2011, Profectum’s primary mission is to advance the training of parents and professionals to help children and families with special needs worldwide. Profectum embraces the DIR® (Developmental, Individual Differences, Relationship-based Model) as its core approach complemented by Profectum’s new Foundational Capacities for Development (FCD™).

On April 12th thru 14th, at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, California, Profectum Foundation will present their First International Conference, Three Dimensional Thinking in Autism and Stress Related Disorders. National experts from the fields of infant mental health, autism treatment, parenting stress, and sensory processing disorders will be presenting practical applications to multi-dimensional thinking that is required of all parents and clinicians working with families and children with special needs. Additionally, Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, will be honored with Profectum’s first Humanitarian Award.

Keynote presentations feature leading researchers sharing their latest findings, as well as clinicians and educators pioneering state-of-the-art multi-dimensional intervention approaches for children, adolescents and individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and other special needs. The role of stress-related disorders either secondary to an individual’s special needs or the result of early childhood trauma and the impact on development and well-being will be explored.
