The theme of this year’s conference is “Bringing Hope and a Future,” a powerful message which seeks to convey the uplifting message that raising and caring for children with autism and other special needs isn’t just about surviving—it’s about thriving.

The conference features insightful sessions led by keynote speakers, including Alvin Keng, Deputy Chairman of timMy and Jochebed Isaacs, a lead instructor on Autism at Home.

Through a series of engaging workshops and talkshow spotlighting inspiring stories from parents, conference attendees gain access to valuable resources, tools and network support, and connect with other parents and caregivers and build lasting connections.

By fostering a sense of hope and empowerment, our aim is to to equip parents and caregivers with the resources and support they need to not only meet the challenges of raising a child with special needs but to also celebrate the unique strengths and potential of every individual.

Together, we can create a brighter future where all children have the opportunity to thrive and fulfill their dreams.
