Each year the Thompson Center hosts an autism conference to educate and provide support for parents and professionals who work with individuals with autism spectrum disorders, including educators, psychologists, speech/language pathologists, medical professionals, applied behavior analysts, employment specialists, vocational rehabilitation counselors, service coordinators and advocates.

The conference aims to provide an atmosphere of hope and upholds a commitment to sharing comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of assessment and intervention strategies supported by research. Breakout sessions offered in three different strands: Focus on Autism: Clinical Practice, Applied Behavior Analysis in Practice and Autism in the Schools.

The 14th annual Autism Conference will be held Sept. 26-27, 2019, at the DoubleTree Chesterfield Hotel in Chesterfield, Mo. We are also adding several hosting a one-day Parent Conference for family members and caregivers, as well as an Ask the Experts event on Sept. 25 at the Doubletree.
