Our Founder’s Story

Greetings! I’m Tametria Conner Dantzler, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Disability as an Ability Toward Success: Moms on the Move. Thank you for your interest in connecting with D.A.T.S.M.O.M., the only non-profit organization for families of children on the autism spectrum founded by a parent who delivers targeted in-home and community-based services, writes and implements programs and trains families, professionals and community stakeholders on how to best serve the autism community.

The diagnosis of my son Conner prompted me to act. The struggles and successes of navigating along this new journey and “figuring it out” led me to create D.A.T.S.M.O.M. I saw a need and created what I thought would address that need. With a focus on culturally relevant support, and breaking down educational and access barriers, this organization is here to help parents see themselves as experts who belong at the table where decisions are being made about their children’s outcome and service delivery plans. I will help you develop your knowledge base, research and leadership skills and create a plan. I believe that every child has an ability toward success if given the opportunity to exposure and appropriate support from parents and professionals.

Clearly, I’m passionate about my son, but I’m also passionate about serving others while being a voice for the voiceless. I started sharing my story to inspire others. I’m a motivational speaker and professional trainer. D.A.T.S. M.O.M. is a spin-off of my high-demand workshop session: “Disability as an Ability Toward Success: Understanding the diagnosis and journey, while executing the plan.” After standing room only sessions and positive feedback from thousands across the country, I wanted a way to teach the under-served and under-represented parents of children with autism who are in most need of advocacy, leadership and educational training, resources and support.

I’m D.A.T.S.M.O.M. and you are too! Let’s start our journey toward success together! I look forward to serving you and your family!

I look forward to serving you and your family!
