Join 1,000 families and professionals for the latest evidence-based information necessary for supporting individuals with ASD. With a focus on practical strategies for learners of all ages, participants consistently provide positive feedback on their conference experience.

One shared, "It is truly awe-inspiring how everyone at the conference has a resolute dedication and commitment to helping families and professionals navigate the complex world of ASD. It always gives me the boost I need to get through the next year!" Another declared, "I connected with people who share similar stresses and obtained ideas that may help my son. I came away with practical knowledge I will begin to use immediately. I was able to not only learn from professionals, but from individuals with ASD as well." We are proud to share that our keynotes are Safety First: How to Assess and Treat Elopement by Wayne Fisher, Ph.D., BCBA-D and Optimistic Parenting: Hope and Help for Individuals with Challenging Behavior by V. Mark Durand, Ph.D. Social skills, communication, challenging behavior, special education law, parent-professional collaboration, and many additional topics will be presented by renowned experts.

With more than 70 workshop choices, both families and professionals who are new to autism or very experienced should find specialized information to enhance their understanding. Resources will be shared by 80 exhibitors representing vendors, schools, agencies, graduate school programs, and more. Parent rates are significantly reduced for 2014, and scholarships are also available.
