I want to let all my readers know that I’ll be speaking in St. Louis, Missouri April 24-25 at the 2019 Adam Morgan Foundation National Conference, whose theme is ”Be Someone’s Missing Piece of the Puzzle!’ This conference will be focusing on the strengths, abilities, dreams, and goals of individuals that learn and communicate differently. Success stories from individuals and family members will be shared with a special focus on extended family partnerships to strengthen those relationships.
I’ll deliver the keynote address, ”Neurodiversity in the Classroom,” on April 24, and then the next day I’ll be doing a breakout workshop on ”The Power of the Adolescent Brain.” The conference will be held at the Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel. Some of the other sessions at the conference will be:
- Nutrition and Autism
- Benefits of Functional Movement in CrossFit & Autism
- Circling Up: Parenting Support Groups
- The Imagery-Language Connection: Improving Comprehension for Children with ASD
- SmartCare for Assistive Technology
- Guardianship Alternatives
- Positive Boost of Animal Therapy
There will also be an awards banquet on April 25th that will honor those individuals and organizations that have provided exemplary services and cutting-edge strategies for people on the ASD spectrum (e.g. most inclusive teacher, best paraprofessional, best cutting-edge autism agency etc.) in the St. Louis area.
