About This Conference

The unique feature of this conference included tracks tailored for parents, clinicians, and educators who are supporting individuals with special needs during a pandemic.

Our conference presenters have been working on the front lines during the pandemic to support each other–parents and professionals. Educators, Administrators, Clinicians, Parents, and Autistic Advocates will share their experiences, guidance, and practical strategies for supporting healthy development during these uncertain times! The core principles and best practices of intensive developmental programs were a key focus of these presentations.

Strategies presented by professionals from the DIR-FCD school and center programs from around the country demonstrated how the Developmental, Individual Differences, Relationship-based Model with the principles of the Foundational Capacities for Development (DIR-FCD™ Model) provide the evidence-based framework for intensive programs for children and adults with autism and related special needs.
