Upcoming Educational Events: 2017 Events TBA SOON!
A key part of our mission at The Parker Foundation is to fund and organize educational services and seminars which we do through our Speak Through Education program. These events are tailored to educate and train parents and caretakers of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, and other related disabilities; topics may include but are not limited to behavioral issues, health concerns, feeding, toileting, communication, socialization, financial issues, understanding IEP's, need for early diagnosis and intervention, community resources and support groups. The Parker Foundation with its partnerships will provide industry experts in the fields of Autism, Childhood Development, Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy, Occupational and Speech therapy, Physicians, IEP Specialists, and other specialized community resource contacts.
These events will help families and caretakers with additional skills to expand and develop their children as well as give them information, additional support and/or benefits that maybe available for them. It also is our hope to expand community awareness, understanding and the potential of children with ASD's and related disabilities. All programs are free of charge and fully funded by The Parker Foundation their partners and affiliates.
