Where is NECC Presenting?

Frequently, NECC staff members present their research to educators, parents, psychologists, and others interested in the field of autism and related disorders. Speaking at regional, national, and international conferences, NECC's staff shares our latest applied research findings based on our work with children with autism. Not only does this allow us to share valuable information with other professionals in our field, but it also serves to fortify NECC's standing as one of the world's leading centers for research on autism.
