EBCALA Empowering Autism Conference at San Diego State University

EBCALA Autism Conference San Diego State University October 19th 2013

Lynne Arnold is an amazing speaker and Tim Adams is a wonderful attorney. This class does not come around very often and it is worth the time and the expense BY FAR!! I took this class myself several years ago and was inspired to become an advocate for both my own son as well as an IHSS Advocate in our community.

TACA is collaborating with the Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law & Advocacy (EBCALA) to bring the Empowering Autism Conference to California families affected by autism. It's an innovative legal training conference with comprehensive advocacyinsight exclusively for parents and grandparents. TACA's Program Director/Legal Advocacy Coordinator Summer Stech will be speaking at the conference.
