Registration is open for Pennsylvania Autism Virtual Training Conference sponsored by the Pennsylvania Office of Developmental Programs (ODP). Due to the continuing pandemic, this conference will be conducted virtually on a three-day schedule that will include presentations and panels from subject matter experts, providers, self advocates, and families. Personal narratives will be interspersed throughout the conference in an effort to highlight the perspective of the individual which should remain at the core of what we do.
This conference will provide professionals working directly with children and/or adults with autism with tools, strategies, and resources to help provide the most effective support.
Registration includes access to all conference sessions on all three days.
