JSU Center for Autism Studies Hosts Parent Conference on March 28


The Jacksonville State University Center for Autism Studies will be hosting a parent mini-conference on Tuesday, March 28, 5–7 p.m., on the 11th floor of the Houston Cole Library.

Mamta Mishra, a local parent and author, will be delivering the keynote address. There will be presentations about behavioral strategies and specifically sensory diet planning. This will also be a good opportunity for parents of autism children to network with others in the region.

Housed in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in JSU’s College of Education and Professional Studies, the center’s mission is to prepare the next generation of education professionals to better interact with students with autism. It provides an avenue for research and education – including early identification, intervention, behavior management, differentiation of instruction, and family dynamics.

While this event is free, registration is required, and seating is limited. This event is specifically geared towards parents of Autism spectrum children, but students, teachers and anyone interested in Autism spectrum awareness are welcome to attend. Registration is currently open and will close once the maximum number of applicants is obtained. To register, please click here
