Inaugural Tri-State Adult Autism Symposium
GCA’s premier event will focus solely on adult Autism issues in the Tri-state area of Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama!
The conference is the first and only autism conference east of the Mississippi River to be focused totally on adult autism issues – employment, independent living, social relationships, health & wellness, and research. This is a full day conference, with social networking events built in the day before the conference and evening after the conference for adults/young adults on the autism spectrum and other interested individuals.
People can expect the following:
1. An after-event social consisting of a BBQ/cookout for adults and young adults on the Autism spectrum on the evening of the Symposium. Anyone attending the Symposium is welcome to this event. (Family-friendly; free of charge.)
2. Breakout session for ASD support-group leaders in Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama.
3. Additional speakers & events (in planning).
Updates will be made on the GCA Centre for Adult Autism | Greater Chattanooga & North Georgia website.
