Welcome to the 2020 Shelter In Place Autism Conference. I thought it would be a good idea to replay some the best conference speakers from our conferences. After all we are all just huddled up here at home. There are 30 conference speakers that we put together for you to listen to. It’s evergreen information to keep you informed whether you’re a parent with someone on the spectrum or a service provider for those on the spectrum.

Please enjoy these awesome speakers!

[eventador_label label="Why This Conference?" /] Well, what else are we going to do? This is a good time to refresh your knowledge and get the tips and tricks to help those on the spectrum. We are replaying topics that include educating those on the spectrum and helpful treatment strategies.

[eventador_label label="Who Should Attend?" /] Everybody is invited! If you have a child or relative with autism this is your chance while you're at home to improve your knowlege and be a better help to those on the spectrum.
