SCAS Conference -- JUST ADDED! Morning Presentation by DJ Svoboda!
2016 ANNUAL CONFERENCE
JUST ADDED!! The Annual Conference will now feature a morning presentation by inspirational speaker, D.J. Svoboda, creator of the Imagifriends of Imagiville! D.J.'s page says, "I am the creator of The Imagifriends of Imagiville. The Imagifriends are based on experiences I faced growing up and living with Autism. There were days when I was made fun of, picked on, and treated mean. These made me feel very sad and hurt. From these experiences came the idea of The Imagifriends of Imagiville." Check him out at Friends of DJ Svoboda and the Imagifriends. Then get your registration in today at http://scautism.org/2016-annual-conference/
D.J. Svoboda was diagnosed at the age of 3 with Autism Spectrum Disorder with psychomotor retardation which included speech delays and issues with his fine motor skills. He found it difficult to even hold a pencil. Today, D.J. is an dynamic, motivational public speaker, accomplished artist and author with three books to his credit; My Imagiville, The Mupperezmo and the Rainbow, and The Inspirations of Imagiville. Growing up, D.J. was teased and bullied. These negative experiences inspired D.J. to create the land of Imagiville; a safe place in his imagination where everyone is treated kindly and accepted just the way they are.
