The National Autism Conference provides comprehensive, evidence-based information to assist educators, other professionals, and families in developing effective educational programming for all students with autism spectrum disorders. The conference occurs annually in the first week of August. The conference will include all virtual sessions this year with some live question and answer sessions.
The conference also includes a virtual peer-reviewed poster session, special sessions highlighting topics of interest, and a virtual Art of Expression exhibit featuring artwork produced by students functioning on the Autism Spectrum. A science camp for secondary students with Autism is provided by Penn State University in conjunction PATTAN. The Conference website also provides a rich store of conference archives including full video record of many important conference presentations.
