The Autism Society of Greater New Orleans is excited to announce two Family Game Night locations; one in Slidell and another in New Orleans! Family Game Night is an opportunity for children on the spectrum and their siblings to not only have fun but to learn while they are having fun. It is also an opportunity for parents to mingle and network with other parents. There will be an assortment of games with varying levels of physical activity, e.g., board games, interactive games, scavenger hunts, one-on-one, two-person or multi-player games. And there will be a variety of volunteers playing the games along with the children to assist with game instructions, rules, and modeling how to play the games appropriately. Come join us for some friendly family competition and some good ole fun! More information and how to register is available on our Family Game Night page.
Since 1965, the Autism Society has embraced its mission to make a better world for all with autism. Shortly after its founding, the Autism Society held an inaugural national conference to discuss the state of children with autism in America. This meeting brought together parents of children with autism to share resources, experiences and develop strategies to be effective advocates for their children.
Today, the Autism Society’s annual conference represents one of the largest gathering of autism families, service providers, educators, policymakers and key allies in the disability community. And this year’s conference, the 47th Annual Autism Society National Conference and Exposition, will be held in New Orleans, July 13 – 16, 2016!
July 13, 2016 – Preconference
July 14-16 – Keynotes, Concurrent Sessions, and Exhibition Hall
