2023 Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Virtual Seminar

Through the Lens of Autism: Exploring Priority Areas and Building Support for Everyday Challenges

Hosted by the Pennsylvania Office of Developmental Programs. 

Through research and experience we have learned that implementing the right tools can help us be better supporters for people on the autism spectrum. But what are those tools? How do you know what the needs are so you can begin to gather effective resources?

This year’s ODP training needs survey asked you to share the top areas of need that people on the autism spectrum experience. As a response to the survey, this seminar will provide a deeper look into a variety of priority areas including communication, mental health, online safety, and family systems that impact everyday life.

ODP invites you to join in the conversation and share your experiences, successes, and resources. Together you will expand you understanding of key challenges that people are facing and brainstorm multiple ways to provide effective and meaningful supports.

  • Wednesday, April 12, 2023, from 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM
  • Monday, April 24, 2023, from 11:30 AM – 3:30 PM
