PARENT AND YOUTH EMPOWERMENT (PYE) SUMMIT
September 18th | Great Wolf Lodge | Williamsburg, Virginia.

PEATC is pleased to announce our 2021 Parent and Youth Empowerment (PYE) Summit. The goals of the Summit are to increase parents' capacity to help their children with disabilities improve their secondary school learning and post-secondary outcomes and to increase the capacity of youth to be effective self-advocates. This is an opportunity to provide youth with disabilities (ages 12-22) and their parents the opportunity to gather valuable information from presentations and exhibitors, to network and to connect with other families. Youth and parents should leave the PYE Summit feeling empowered by the experience.

There is a $25 registration fee, which will be refunded to those who attend the Summit in its entirety.

This event is for Virginia residents only!! Spaces are limited. You must receive a confirmation to attend this event and you must commit to participating in the Summit.

Contact PEATC at 800-869-6782 or [email protected] with any questions; please do not contact the venue directly.

Thursday Lunch and Learn at 12:00 PM from Autism Center for Excellence!

7/15 Lunch and Learn (12 pm ET): Parent Reinforcement and Child Preferences (Re-Broadcast) - This webinar is meant to assist parents with an increased understanding of reinforcement and
how to quickly and easily use reinforcement in everyday situations to increase desired behaviors. We start the presentation with the ABCs of behavior so that parents can get a foundation of the two main influences on behavior (i.e. antecedents and consequences). Next, we discuss how reinforcement is one of the most well-researched and effective evidence-based practices in behavior analysis and ways parents can identify what is reinforcing for their child. We then show how to use this knowledge so desired behaviors will be achieved and maintained over time. Register: https://vcuautismcenter.org/te/webcasts/upcoming.cfm

Feedback on Autism Services in Virginia

REMINDER: The deadline for providing feedback on autism services in Virginia is July 2, 2021!

CA Human Services is conducting a statewide survey to gather feedback about autism services from parents and other family members of individuals with autism. We would like to have as much participation as possible to ensure all opinions and ideas are considered. We would very much appreciate your participation!

CA Human Services (formerly Commonwealth Autism) is a nonprofit organization that works with people with autism and other developmental disabilities and their families to help them thrive. At the conclusion of this study, we will share the results with organizations that serve individuals with autism across the Commonwealth and work together to remove barriers to improve the experience.

Please use the link below to complete this survey by Friday, July 2, 2021. This survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete, and your responses will be anonymous. Thank you for your valuable feedback!
