Tuscaloosa residents:

Hello! My name is Madison Dox, and I am a senior at The University of Alabama majoring in public relations. For our final campaigns class, we are conducting focus groups with families of people with disabilities next week and are desperate for more participants. This research will help us make a great campaign for our client, whose mission is to raise awareness, funds, and experiences for people of different abilities.

We would love to hear about your experiences and create a positive change in attitudes and accessibilities in the Tuscaloosa community.

Please private message me if you are willing to participate.

We greatly appreciate your help and time!

Have you been thinking about the Inaugural Tri State Adult Autism Symposium Conference but have not registered yet? Great.

Just today, two people from Kansas registered to attend the conference. Someone from Phoenix, Arizona and a family from the Washington DC suburbs have already registered. That is why the words "Tri State" is a misnomer in the name of this conference. People from Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, Arizona, and Virginia have registered so far. Why not register, too? After all, this is an adult autism conference founded by an autistic adult for the adult autism community and autism community at large. The first and only adult autism conference east of the Mississippi River and only one of three adult autism conferences on this entire planet.

Why attend the conference? Lots of social networking for autistic adults. A terrific silent auction, session presenters, and much more.

For more information about the conference and registration, please go to www . gcaspies . org / conference. Early bird registration going on now. Don't wait too long before early bird ends - the cost to register will go up.

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you in Chattanooga, Tennessee on July 22. Any questions? Email me at [email protected].

Alabama Autism Assistance Program (AAAP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Autism affects 1 out of 88 children. The mission of the AAAP/HANDS is to provide scholarships and therapy to children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders.
