ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

 

The 2019 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

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

As an educator, therapist, parent, advocate, citizen, service provider, researcher, student, or leader, we all have opportunities every day to address a need, lend a hand, and make a difference in the lives of others. Reflecting on two decades of service to the autism community, Dr. Hughes will share her journey and experiences to address barriers and build bridges for coordination of care between schools, families, and communities. With a child/person-centered approach to problem solving, Dr. Hughes will provide insight and inspiration for addressing needs and improving outcomes for families through teamwork and collaboration.
