This year’s Texas State Autism Conference will be held on August 3rd and 4th in San Antonio. Information about the conference can be found here: http://txautism.esc2.net/
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. 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:
- To families with a newly diagnosed child
- To families who have never attended the Texas Autism Conference
- To families who have attended the conference in the past, but have never received funding from ESC Region 13
- To families who represent a geographic diversity in ESC Region 13
- To families who have the earliest application
SUBMISSION DEADLINE for all applications is May 24, 2017. Award recipients will be notified by May 31, 2017.
IMPORTANT! Directions for registering will be provided after stipends are awarded. Parents/families are responsible for making the arrangements for all costs including registration (with or without the stipend), transportation, and lodging for the conference. ESC Region 13 will not make any of these reservations.
Please note these stipends are only available to families in ESC Region 13’s Central Texas service delivery area.
