Practical Strategies and Nitty-Gritty Tips for Living with Autism
Saturday, Nov. 14th, 10am- 3:15pm
First Presbyterian Church, 9 S. Seminary Street in Barre, VT
Advance Registration is $25/ $30 at the door. $15 for Self-Advocates
Welcome, self-advocates, family members and professionals to our Workshop Day. Please join us on Saturday, November 14 for the first ever Vermont Autism Task Force “Workshop Day”. The Workshop Day is a no-frills event: there will be no keynote speaker and no fancy hotel. Instead, this is an opportunity for members of the community to gain practical knowledge, while helping us fundraise. We have six workshops available and attendees can select up to three workshops. All workshops are presented by members of the Vermont Autism Task Force.
We welcome everyone to come, whether or not you or your family member is on the autism spectrum. Some of the workshop topics are broad and not specific to autism.
The Workshop Day is a fundraising effort of the Vermont Autism Task Force to help us defray costs for advocacy events, including our annual Autism Awareness Day at the Vermont Statehouse. If you are unable to attend the event, but would like to provide a donation, please click on the registrationform and select the “no workshop” option. Please note that the Vermont Autism Task Force is not a 501 (c)(3) and your donation is not tax deductible.
Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. Coffee and baked goods will be available. The first workshops start at 10 a.m. and the last workshops are scheduled to end at 3:15 p.m. There will be a half hour break for lunch. Please note that lunch is on your own. There are some restaurants in the area, but we suggest you bring lunch from home due to the short break.
Use the Advance Registration form to register and secure a seat early. The Advanced General Registration donation is $25 when paid online by November 13th ($30 at the door); the online and at-the-door registration donation for self-advocates is $15. Registration paid at the door may be made by cash or check only; again, seating is limited.
We are unable to offer scholarships or refunds for this fundraising event. If you would like to attend and are experiencing a financial hardship, please contact Vermont Family Network to see if they may have grants available. They can be contacted at 800-800-4005.
