Autism Fall Conference

We are pleased to invite you to be a part of this opportunity to exchange ideas, resources and knowledge that will inspire hope and innovation for those who live and work with individuals with autism.

Keynote Speaker: Nancy Tarshis, MA, MS, CCC-SLP
As a Social Thinking Trainer and Speaker for Michelle Garcia-Winner’s Social Thinking Methodologies, Nancy helps people with social emotional learning challenges improve how they interpret and respond to social information to better connect with others. “At our conferences, we teach professionals and parents strategies to improve social com-petencies in those they support. Our practical strategies can be used immediately in the classroom, clinic, home and community, and help improve performance on educational standards (including the Common Core Standards), as well as reinforce programs such as PBIS, RTI, SEL, and others”.

Individuals on the spectrum will have a platform to exchange knowledge and what has been helpful for them with life skills. They will talk about important times in their lives which includes transition to adulthood with the hope of imparting information that can be of help to other individuals with autism.

All are welcome; parents, caregivers, educators, professionals, employers, individuals with autism and anyone who can benefit from this autism resource.
