Sponsorship and Booth Information

Autism impacts 1 out of 68 people in the United States. It is more prevalent than pediatric cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined; and its national incidence has increased by more than 500% in the past 10 years. Thousands of parents and professionals across the state of Missouri dedicate their lives to helping children, adolescents, and adults with autism. This is your opportunity to show support for these individuals. 

The University of Missouri Thompson Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders is currently seeking sponsors for the Autism Intervention Conference. This is the largest autism-related conference in the state of Missouri and is rapidly gaining recognition across the Midwest. It will feature numerous presenters who will link autism research and autism intervention for 300 to 500 professionals who work with individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities.

For information and availability of sponsorship opportunities (including other opportunities to reach families/caregivers affected by Autism), please contact Krista Hughes, HughesKL@health.missouri.edu; (573) 884-5164.
