2014 CAAI Virtual Poster Symposium

Monday, July 28, 2014- Tuesday, July 29, 2014
3:00 PM EDT - 5:00 PM EDT
Location: webinar

CAAI grantees are cordially invited to present at and participate in our first CAAI Virtual Poster Symposium!

What is a Virtual Poster Symposium?

A virtual poster symposium expands the concept of a poster presentation beyond the walls of a conference hall. This event will share a wide variety of successes CAAI grantees have experienced in the identification, assessment, diagnosis, and services to children with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities and their families. 

The purpose of this virtual poster session is to:

  • Allow presenters to display and discuss their posters to a greater audience than in regular conference settings
  • Encourage new partnerships and collaborations that reach beyond disciplines
  • Solicit feedback from fellow CAAI grantees on a project
  • Create an online catalog of CAAI grantees' accomplishments people can view at their leisure
