Registration has been extended until April 19th, 2019 for the 5th Annual Targeting Autism National Forum May 16-17, 2019 on the campus of Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois.

This year’s forum theme is autism and human/civil rights.  We will have several national speakers to explore this important topic with us, including: John Elder Robison, Chantal Sicile-Kira and Tom Iland.  We will also have an exhibit hall and poster exhibits at this year’s forum.

You can find more information about the forum and this year’s speakers on our blog here, or check out the Targeting Autism Facebook page or Twitter @TargetingAutis.

Hotel accommodations will be provided for attendees on May 15 and May 16 at the Carleton Hotel of Oak Park (unless you reside nearby) as well as a light breakfast and lunch during both days of the forum.  Dinner is on your own.  There will be shuttle service to and from the hotel to Dominican University on both days.

The Carleton hotel is 11.6 miles from O’Hare airport and 10.4 miles from Chicago Midway airport and the hotel is just 2 miles from Dominican University.

There are still a few seats available, so register soon by sending an email to: Suzanne Schriar at sschriar@ilsos.gov.
