Check out some of the breakout sessions for the 2021 Texas Autism Virtual Conference!
The 2021 Texas Autism Conference is three days (June 24th-26th) packed full of the latest learning on how to better serve individuals with autism and their families.
But unlike a traditional conference, you don't have to choose between several breakout sessions that are happening at the same time. This conference is hosted online through the Eventee app, which allows you to watch live and have access to all 28 recorded sessions for up to 60 days! Note that the sessions are prerecorded to ensure quality presentation. However, the speakers will be present during their sessions to interact and answer questions throughout their presentation.
So register before May 31st to get the early bird pricing of $100 for all three days or to participate in our FREE family day on June 26th.
Here's a look at a few of the breakout sessions:

Navigating the Dating World through Asperger's
