Description

Brief History
Milestones was founded in 2003 by parents interested in improving the level of programming available for their children with autism, particularly by training professionals, paraprofessionals and parents in ABA. In August 2003, Milestones Organization hosted its first conference. Each year about 400 parents, educators and speech therapists come to learn about effective strategies from national and local speakers.

Target Audience
Our target audience is the autism community which we define as the professionals who work with individuals with autism and parents. The professionals are in the fields of education, speech therapy, occupational therapy, psychology, and social work.

Services
Milestones organizes an annual conference, training programs for para-professionals and professionals, and referral advice to families.
