2014 CAAI Virtual Series

Tuesday, April 1, 2014- Wednesday, July 30, 2014
Location: online

This year, CAAI grantees have had the opportunity to share their many successes and discuss topics of mutual interest in a virtual environment. CAAI grantees have shared and learned about research, training and systems coordination for children, families and adults affected by autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities.  Activities began during Autism Awareness Month (April) and came to an end with the Virtual Poster Symposium and Discussion Session on July 28-29, 2014.  This series replaced the annual face-to-face CAAI meeting.
