      Hello chavisory! There is no transcription of these talks, however, if you google Targeting Autism YouTube channel and display the individual presentations, you can click on the CC button to turn on the closed captioning. Many of our presenters also have used powerpoint to create slides that accompany their presentation. Links to some of those powerpoint slide are included on the blog and some of the links I can send to you. Not the perfect answer, but hopefully helpful.
