It has been a couple of weeks now since the SASI autism conference hosted by DDI on March 2nd. The turnout was exceptional (twice the number of participants as last year’s event!). But perhaps even more importantly, the content and format of the day provided essential information to parents, family members, providers and clinicians alike.
Of particular note was the allocation of resources and ‘overflow’ rooms where participants could speak to presenters after their talks. This built-in ‘extra time‘ became a forum for participants to have questions and concerns addressed personally and in some depth.
Join Dr. Romas tomorrow in a conversation with conference planner and SASI founder Priscilla Arena and ‘SASI’ moms Nancy Villa and Michelle Vander Hoven as they reveal the ‘secret sauce‘ around this successful event. Hear from the moms themselves exactly what information proved to be most useful - and what areas of inquiry must be pursued going forward.
