This full-day conference will present dynamic speakers from the Sage Esteves School of Education faculty, as well as other leaders in autism treatment and research. Speakers will be organized along tracks in concurrent sessions, so that a variety of topics relevant to autism at all ages and levels of ability will be presented throughout the day.
This conference will be appropriate for professionals, including psychologists, behavior analysts, teachers, related service providers, and direct care providers, as well as for parents and family members of individuals on the autism spectrum.
We anticipate an active vendor exhibitor area, and will be providing continuing education credits for Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA). We will also provide certificates to teachers for professional development hours.
Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided.
