Special Training Events and Featured Speakers

2023-2024 Academic year project access scholarship events 

From time to time Project ACCESS makes speakers with in-depth expertise available or provides or commercial training opportunities to Missouri educators working with students with autism. We endeavor to make these free or low cost.  When possible we offer scholarships that cover the cost of registration fees (travel costs would still be the responsibility of attendees).
