Conference Program

We are thrilled to announce our outstanding group of keynote presenters this year. Following this year’s theme, "Autism: Moving Forward", these distinguished presenters will share their perspectives, experiences, training, research and valuable insights to help persons on the autism spectrum, families, teachers and other professionals, administrators, and policymakers to move forward in their lives and communities. Keynote topics cover a range of pressing issues, including visions of the future and how to proceed from here, understanding movement and movement differences, considering context and barriers to social functioning, the right to communicate, and self-advocacy.

Here is the complete conference program, which you can download and print.  We may update this occasionally between now and the conference.
