CAC Upcoming Events

The Children's Autism Center regularly offers guest speakers with exceptional credentials in the field of autism, presenting educational information for families, caregivers, educators, and medical staff. Previous topics have included food aversion, challenging behavior in autism, toilet training, and Pivotal Response Training.

The Children's Autism Center regularly offers recreational events for children with autism or other special needs and their families. In the past, these events have centered around music, art, sailing, and baseball.

Some events are offered at no cost to participants, while larger or longer events generally carry a small registration fee.

Registration is requested because space is limited, and child care is available at select events with prior arrangement. The location of the program or event will be noted on our website and Facebook page. Call the CAC at 641-355-1201 for more information.
