 Family Care Council Florida Public Meeting
The Family Care Councils are a group of Governor-appointed volunteers who advocate for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. The council’s primary functions are to:
• assist in providing information and outreach to self-advocates and families;
• review the effectiveness of the APD and make recommendations with respect to implementation;
• advise the APD administrators on the community and family support systems in their area; and
• meet and share information with other area FCCs.

The FCCs work closely together representing individuals with developmental disabilities and their families as a united voice. Through the Family Care Council Florida (FCCF), chairpersons or a representative of each council meets quarterly to educate and discuss common issues and concerns. Speakers are often invited to provide the FCCF with information on topics that affect individuals with developmental disabilities in Florida.

 Designing Evidence-Based Programming for Students with ASD
Over the past 10 years, the evidence base for educating students with ASD has grown substantially. However, implementing these practices in real-life classrooms can be a challenge at times. Starting with planning the classroom schedule and programs, this presentation will walk through the process of integrating the research knowledge with practical application on a day to day basis. Participants will learn methods for organizing the classroom environment, schedule and staff to maintain high levels of engagement. Then, areas of critical development for students with ASD will be reviewed along with the research base with a specific emphasis on how to integrate them into a classroom framework. Finally, methods for setting up data collection to evaluate the impact of the classroom activities will be discussed

For ages 12 and under and less than 60” tall, socks are required for play. Although Sensational Sunday concludes at 12pm when Family Fun Center opens to the public, all day play is included in your admission if you wish you stay or even come back later in the day.
