Dear Conference Attendee:

We are excited to present an amazing conference! Just a few updates to make your experience a good one. If you are in administration and registered for others, please send this email to the attendees that you registered.

Registration
Registration begins at 7:45 until the first session at 8:30. We have many in attendance and the lines may be long. We will have registration down both halls to the left and right. You do not need a receipt or confirmation, just your last name. Coffee and pastries will be served and exhibitor hall will be open.

Capacity
We have reached capacity at the conference. We will have a full house. Some rooms may be fuller than others. We try our best to determine which presentations to put in the largest rooms. There are limited chairs in the facility and storage is limited. Therefore, we were not able to remove tables to allow more chairs in some rooms due to facility rules.

Handouts
Handouts will be available today and tonight. There will not be printed handouts unless a speaker decided to bring. We apologize for the delay in uploading. Our speakers are busy today finalizing. These will be up for a limited time then will be removed from our website. The link has been emailed to all registered attendees.

Other
Temperatures are often hard to regulate with many people in one space. Please bring a sweater or dress in layers to be most comfortable. A limited amount of clipboard and writing paper will be provided. You may want to have a binder to write notes in.

An autism bookstore selling books and autism awareness items will be onsite. We will take debit cards. Cash helps make the line move quicker. Raffle tickets will be given for purchasing books, visiting vendor tables and joining the FEAT community Kroger campaign. We will be giving away free items at the conference with the raffle tickets. See the registration table and bookstore for questions.

Parking
Please NOTE: The first 6 or so rows of parking are reserved. Please park after the 6th row in the morning.

Thank all of you for your participation this year! We have an incredible line of speakers and presentations. We are excited to have this wonderful educational opportunity for parents and professionals.

Warm regards,
FEAT-North Texas

About the Conference

The 2016 DFW Autism Conference brings together experts for two days of training that focus on ways to improve the quality of life for those with autism and special needs, their families, caregivers and professionals working with them. The presentations will cover areas of behavioral and developmental therapies/strategies and family issues. It is presented for Educators, Therapists, Health Care Professionals, Caretakers, Parents and anyone who wants to learn more about services and treatment for individuals living with Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADD, ADHD and other learning disabilities. Over the course of time, FEAT-NT’s educational opportunities and conferences have educated more than 15,000 parents and professionals in the autism community.

With autism now affecting 1 out of every 68 children, and 1 out of 42 boys, support in DFW is greatly needed. This training will bring families and professionals affected by autism together for guidance, training, and to share our struggles and accomplishments!

With You Every Step of the Way,
FEAT – North Texas
