Conference comes with benefit concert

On-campus show to raise money for UNT autism center

Maybe it’s not the stuff of your average conference, but a rock concert is part of a University of North Texas program’s fifth annual Adventures in Autism next week.

The UNT Kristen Farmer Autism Center is the host of the yearly research conference, and the DREAM 2013 Benefit Concert will be an uptempo time-out for presenters and participants.

The DREAM concert — the acronym’s short for DFW Rocks to End Autism through Music — starts at 4:30 p.m. July 27, featuring performances by the School of Rock, Goodnight Ned, Blue Bear, the O’s, Fate Lions, and Jess and the Echoes.

The concert will be in the atrium of the UNT Business Leadership Building, located between Maple and West Highland streets at Avenue A.

Tickets cost $15, available at the door or online at http://autism.unt.edu .

The UNT Kristin Farmer Autism Center, part of the university’s College of Education, gives families a resource for comprehensive autism spectrum disorders treatment, research and support and allows UNT to bring together its long history of interdisciplinary autism services and research under one roof.
