Autism Speaks Adult Services

It is my pleasure to invite you to attend the Autism Speaks Adult Services Town Hall event scheduled in Broward, Florida on September 10th as a Resource Provider.  The event will take place at Bailey Hall at Broward College from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm. The event will include a moderated panel discussion, an audience Q&A session, a resource fair, and many opportunities for networking.

The goal of the Adult Services Town Hall is to bring together young adults and adults with autism, families, adult service providers and state resources in a positive and collaborative atmosphere. It will focus on the critical resources that impact some of the most important, but often overlooked, facets of adult life including healthcare, financial planning, and legal concerns. Our panelists will be able to provide families with crucial information to consider as you or your family plan for adulthood. Our guiding principle is simple: we believe that all individuals with autism, regardless of the level of support needed, should be able to live fulfilling lives filled with purpose, dignity, choices, and happiness.


6:00 pm                 Resource fair

7:00 pm                 Panel discussion begins

8:30 pm                 Discussion ends


The panel will include local adult support service providers, advocates, and experts, all of whom are educated and knowledgeable about adult autism services in Broward and the surrounding communities. The Resource Fair, of which we are hoping you will be a part, will include agencies that provide services for young adults and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities, not limited solely to transition.

Please see the attached flyer with general information that can be sent to families and individuals involved in your organization or that you know would benefit from this event. Please confirm that you can accept this invitation to participate as a local Resource Provider as the date is quickly approaching. And you can find more information, as well as register, at http://bit.ly/2015TownHallBroward. We hope to make it a great success and help families in our area.


Thank you in advance, and feel free to let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
