Annual TECA Conference

Each Fall TECA convenes an annual conference for parents. Conference lectures, workshops and activities are
thoughtfully planned to provide parents with the information and resources to help them understand and confidently
support their 2e child, and to communicate their child’s needs to others. TECA members will be the first to know about
the annual conference and other upcoming events, and will be offered discounted rates for these events.

TECA provides site visitors with a
