The Virginia Autism Project and leading Tidewater Autism community organizations will host our Seventh Annual Autism Summit! Last years event was the largest gathering of Autism Service providers in Virginia’s history and we hosted over 500 Families. This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, November 7th from 11:00 -3:00 at the Waterman’s Festival Center at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Our Autism Summit is a day for families to gather information and learn of the services our Autism community has to offer. We offer this event at no cost for all providers & families. We provide food and beverages, free toys for all children in attendance, a bounce house, petting zoo, bubble land and a host of other Autism Sensory areas. This allows parents to meet service providers and set up services to assist their children. This is a great opportunity for families to find and secure the support they need for the difficult and challenging diagnosis of Autism. We welcome for profit, not for profit, local, state, federal and faith based service providers in an attempt to provide families access to all who can assist them.
Autism is a neurobiological condition that affects a person’s ability to communicate and to interact with others. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in the United States.
