Please join us at our Scheduled Meetings, which are free and open to the public. Although our meetings are geared toward parents and families, professionals are also welcome. Typically, each meeting has a featured speaker who is an expert in some aspect of autism services. After the presentation is a question and answer period, followed by “mingle time” where attendees can chat informally with our speaker and members of our board of directors.

We also offer Newly Diagnosed Meetings, which provide information on the autism diagnosis, the assessment process, basic information about therapeutic options, detailed information on Applied Behavior Analysis including research studies, the discrete trial and the basics of behavior analysis, and an overview of school district and regional center legal responsibilities related to funding services for your autistic child. Our Newly Diagnosed meetings are open to any parent or family member, and there is no charge for attending. Please contact Maria Crawford at with any questions.
