The AZA Approach
The complex needs of children with autism spectrum disorders are better served when professionals in different fields work together in partnership with families. That is why the annual AZA United conference values a transdisciplinary approach to autism treatment and family support. This approach is a collaboration in which exchanging information, altering discipline-specific approaches, sharing resources and integrating strategies helps achieve a common goal of maximizing treatment effectiveness and quality of life. There's no-one-size-fits-all, so let's work together and share anything and everything that works!
This conference offers 3 tiers of pricing. There are separate rates for professionals or general admission, parents or teachers, and habilitators or paraprofessionals. A limited number of scholarships are also available for AZA families. Early registration discounts are available for everyone.
