TIPS FOR CONFERENCES
Tip: the parent who is learning is making progress. The parent connected to their community is CONNECTED!

Why go
1) Learn from speakers, learn from the exhibit hall
2) More science in treatments since 2005 then all previous years combined
3) Meeting other parents
4) Talk to the resources that could help – before your fly and travel – interview (HUGE time savings)
Why NOT to go
1) Same speakers/topics
2) Something more interesting to you and won’t help your child
3) Because you need a break – take a real break. Immersion in autism 24/7 may not be the best strategy

How to get there
1) ROAD TRIP!
2) Frequent flier miles from family and friends
3) Scholarships
4) Work it baby
5) Share a room with a friend
What to bring
1) Your child’s medical & academic records
2) Get ready to go back to school – LAPTOP or tablet is better for notes.
3) The conference schedule – highlight must to sees (if you don’t know get a mentor so you can see the most important speakers for your child – NOT the latest and greatest)
If you are alone
1) Take the time to get more rest!!
2) Get to the TACA Mentor area – they will befriend you
3) Ask the organizer if there is anyone from your state – make it your mission to find them
What to do AFTER
1) Prioritize what you heard to discuss with your child’s team (doctor, therapists)
2) Make a list
3) Plan your steps –
4) I cannot afford all of this!! Revisit WHO PAYS FOR WHAT on TACA’s website
