Karen Simmons giving her talk at the Autism Vancouver Biennial Congress 2011. Karen Simmons, CEO and founder of Autism Today, is also the mother to six, two with special needs, and is the inspiration, co-author and driving force for "Chicken Soup for the Soul, Children with Special Needs" which is co-authored with Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Heather McNamara. Ms. Simmons will tell the audience how the book was born, a little about her own children with special needs and share special heart-felt stories from this highly acclaimed book. Ms Simmons's passion has led her to create many titles, one of which is the "The Official Autism 101 Manual" which won the IPPY Gold Medal in the medicine category and the newly released "Autism Tomorrow, The Complete Guide to helping your Child Thrive in the Real World". Ms. Simmons will be available for book signings following the presentation.
