You Can’t Miss This!
We’re bringing together 25 or more of the world’s autism and parenting experts to share the most effective symptom management and parenting strategies for kids with less-obvious autism, and their parents.
They’ll share insights on the autistic brain and experience, the impact of sensory struggles, effective symptom management, coping with emotional intensity, transitioning after high school, empowering your child for success, and so, so much more.
25 expert talks shared with you!
If you want to improve life for your child with autism, and improve life for yourself as a parent of a child with autism, this is an event you can’t afford to miss.
What You'll Learn
Autism is a complex neuro-developmental disorder. Understanding the gifts and challenges will help you better understand your child so you can help them succeed.
Treatment and therapies can greatly improve the lives of individuals with autism, even those with symptoms that are less obvious. Learn about the options so you can determine what will be helpful for your child.
Many parents worry about how to change autistic behaviors, but it’s more helpful to understand what causes the behaviors. Learn what your child’s behavior is telling you, and how to address it.
School, Work & Life Skills
Many families wonder how to help their autistic child function in a neurotypical world. We’ll tackle school issues, transition strategies, college success, and employment readiness for individuals with autism.
Friends & Family
Social and communication skills are a well-known struggle for those on the autism spectrum. Learn how to strengthen the parent-child relationship, improve social skills, and navigate relationships.
