The Advance LA Conference welcomed more than 370 parents, educators, clinicians, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students to engage leading experts in the latest research and best practices for young adults with autism, learning differences and ADHD. Young people with special needs experience the same benefits of positive emotions as their typical peers. Happiness broadens focus and expands thinking, improves the ability to problem-solve, builds physical, intellectual and social skills, counteracts negative emotions, increases creativity and boosts the immune system.
