Managing Editor's Note: Fall is conference time! We told you about the DAN! Conference in Dallas in early October. Here's info on the National Autism Association Conference at the Hyatt Regency Bonaventure Conference Center and Spa in Weston, Florida.
How do you choose a conference? Some folks start with the speakers. Perhaps there's a particular doc you want to hear. Others look at travel distance and hotel costs for financial reasons. Whether you choose DAN! or NAC or any of the other conferences coming this Fall, learning how to help your child with autism is always good for the mind, body and soul. And from what I hear, the Hyatt Bonaventure is particularly good at pampering all three.
From our friends at NAA:
Relaxing, informative, hopeful, casual, laid-back, rejuvenating, affordable, tropical, FUN...are we talking about a conference? Absolutely!
If you're an autism parent, this conference is for YOU! The NAC features the world's leading experts on autism in a relaxed, environmentally-friendly tropical resort setting. The schedule is designed to keep you from running frantically from one presentation to another - take some time to dip your toes in the pool or do some shopping in the exhibit hall. Sleep in! - There's nothing on your agenda before 9 am!
The on-site Red Door Spa will give you a chance to pamper yourself - can you even remember what that's like? The intimate atmosphere allows opportunities to network with speakers, community leaders, fellow parents and friends. FREE food items and beverages will be available in our exhibit hall throughout the conference to help keep your expenses down. Use the money you save to get a massage, or have cocktails by the pool waterfall! This is YOUR conference, don't miss it!
New this year!
When you register to attend the full conference, you can choose to purchase a companion pass for just $125! Bring your spouse, your Mom, your best friend, your child's therapist - you get the picture! And be sure to tell them to pack their flip-flops!
