The 25th Annual Texas State Autism Conference provides educators and parents with evidence based strategies, resources, and tools that may be utilized in the education of students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This conference is sponsored by the Texas Education Agency and coordinated by ESC Region 2.
For the past 15+ years, ESC Region 13 has been able to offer stipends to supplement some of the cost of the conference for parents. We are fortunate to be able to offer a limited number of parent stipends again this year. This year the stipend covers the cost of parent registration ($125); participants will be responsible for their own travel, hotel, and food costs. One stipend per family will be considered. Stipend information will be provided to the recipients prior to registration. Please do not register before you receive information on how to register with a stipend. A family must have a child with ASD between the ages of 3 and 21. Priority will be given in the following order:
1. To families with a newly diagnosed child2. To families who have never attended the Texas Autism Conference3. To families who have attended the conference in the past, but have never received funding from ESC Region 134. To families who represent a geographic diversity in ESC Region 135. To families who have the earliest application.
Please note these stipends are available only to families in Education Service Center Region 13's Central Texas service delivery area.
Please also note, you are responsible for making your own arrangements, including registration, hotel, and travel.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE for all applications is May 24, 2017. Award recipients will be notified by May 31, 2017.
