About This Conference

Using the Developmental, Individual Differences, Relationship-based Model with the principles of the Foundational Capacities for Development (FCD’s) aka “The 5 C’s of Me!,” this conference highlighted how schools, therapy centers, and home programs around the globe utilize the DIR-FCD Model to provide the evidence-based framework for intensive programs for children and adults with autism and related unique needs. Our conference presenters have been working on the front lines for decades. Educators, Administrators, Clinicians, Parents, and Autistic Advocates shared their experiences, guidance, and practical strategies for supporting healthy development and the critical importance of “balance” in all of our lives! Examples of intensive training and supervision modules for staff with the common goal of helping children strive for their highest potential were illustrated. Many had fun with us as we visited and learned from progressive, interdisciplinary special needs schools and clinics around the globe. As we move beyond masks, social distancing, and uncertainty, this conference shared lessons learned and a better understanding of what our students, families, and educators need. The past two school years have enabled us all to step back and reevaluate our priorities. Many educators gained a new appreciation for working collaboratively with families during remote instruction. We want to ensure that we leverage our experiences in a way that continually builds upon each school’s individual educational philosophy.
