Exploring the Spectrum 2015 – eSpecial Needs and United Services for Children

eSpecial Needs is proud to announce we’ll be at United Services for Children’s third annual “Exploring the Spectrum” autism information fair. This free event is a great way for families of children with autism, caregivers, and professionals in autism fields to get the resources they need, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it for another year.


This year’s event will feature two guest speakers: noted author and speaker Jennifer McIlwee Myers and regional autism expert Dr. John Constantino. Between speakers, the therapists at United Services for Children will lead four breakout sessions focusing on general behavior, behavior in the community, assistive technology and sibling support.

eSpecial Needs will be among many other service providers and organizations on-hand to provide tools and information to all those who attend. We’ll be demonstrating some of our most popular autism-related products – including switches, weighted vests and blankets and sensory toys – as well as answering any questions attendees may have about strollers, multi-sensory environments and more.

This event will run 8:30 a.m. to approximately 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 11, 2015, at the Spencer Road Library Community Commons, located at 427 Spencer Road in St. Peters, Missouri.
