Autism center hosts annual conference, benefit concert

 Autism benefit concert

Nationally recognized autism researchers and practitioners gathered July 27 to speak about the latest developments in their fields at the UNT Kristin Farmer Autism Center’s 5th Annual Adventures in Autism Intervention and Research Conference.

More than 250 special educators, behavior analysts, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, parents and other autism service providers attended. More than 50 parents received grants from the Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities to attend.

Keynote speakers were Brian Reichow of the University of Connecticut and Katherine Loveland of the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Researchers and professionals in the field of autism intervention presented more than 20 breakout sessions. The conference offered free childcare and continuing education credit for board certified behavior analysts and speech and language pathologists.

After the conference, eight bands from the Dallas and Austin areas rocked the stage in a benefit concert to raise money to support the mission of the Kristin Farmer Autism Center. More than 400 people gathered on campus for the D.R.E.A.M. 2013 (DFW Rocks to End Autism through Music) Benefit Concert and enjoyed live performances by School of Rock, Goodnight Ned, Jess and the Echoes, Special Mister Ed, Fate Lions, Blue Bear, The O’s and Larry g(EE). The concert marked Dallas funk singer-songwriter Larry g(EE)’s first performance in Denton, and his band included two UNT alumni as backup vocalists.

Autism Comprehensive Educational Services, Inc. and Kristin Farmer sponsored the conference and benefit concert.
