Lighting the way to hope

Pine Tree Society and Spurwink are pleased to present the 11th annual Southern Maine Autism Conference! The conference is designed for parents and family members of children with autism spectrum disorders, as well as their educators and other service providers. In addition to our keynote, we offer a number of breakout sessions covering a wide range of topics. Our attendees will leave with practical tools and strategies that can be implemented immediately in the home, school and community. Maybe more importantly, we work hard to create an environment of networking and support. You will meet others who understand – and hopefully you will stay connected beyond the end of the day.
