ABOUT THE CONFERENCE:

ODP’s Pennsylvania Autism Training Conference (PATC) will be taking the virtual stage once again in early October 2021. 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 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.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

Professionals looking to increase their knowledge of and/or ability to support individuals with autism across the spectrum and the lifespan. We welcome all professionals supporting individuals with autism in Pennsylvania, in all systems. Please join us!
