47th Annual Autism Society National Conference
July 14, 2016 - July 16, 2016
Since 1965, the Autism Society has embraced its mission to make a better world for all with autism. Shortly after its founding, the Autism Society held an inaugural national conference to discuss the state of children with ASD in America. This meeting brought together parents of children with ASD to share resources, experiences and develop strategies to be effective advocates for their children.
Today, the Autism Society’s annual conference represents one of the largest gathering of autism families, service providers, educators, policymakers and key allies in the disability community. We have an exciting list of speakers this year which include:
John Donvan and Caren Zucker, authors of In a Different Key – The Story of Autism Opening Keynote Speakers
Steve Silberman, author of NeuroTribes, Closing Keynote Speaker
Alycia Halladay, Chief Science Officer, Autism Science Foundation, General Session Speaker
Dr. Jim Ball, Keynote Speaker
With the demand for autism experts and autism therapists on the rise, it is more important than ever for teachers and health professionals to have some form of ASD training. At IBCCES, we are committed to providing professional development training through our Autism Certification.
