The 2020 Savannah Autism Conference will host 40 workshops during the 2-day conference to be held on February 6th and 7th, 2020. Since 2016, more than 1500 family members, educators, health professionals and autistic self-advocates from a dozen states and Puerto Rico have attended the annual autism conference. This year, participants will learn how to support autistic students in the classroom; discuss strategies on employment, social skills, self determination, and special education; and prepare for life as an autistic adult. The 2020 keynote address is titled “Outside Your Comfort Zone” presented by autistic self-advocate and author, Dr. Daniel Wendler, and author and advocate, Dr. Kyler Shumway. Tickets are on sale now.
According to Faye Montgomery, Advocacy Director for The Matthew Reardon Center for Autism, “the Savannah Autism Conference’s purpose is to improve our community’s capacity for inclusion and support of autistic individuals from childhood through adulthood.”
The Matthew Reardon Center for Autism, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation in Savannah, GA, provides autism-related advocacy and outreach across southeast Georgia and operates southeast Georgia’s only accredited, year-round day school for children with autism, as well as an inclusion preschool for very young children with, and without autism.
