This year the Autism Society of America is headed out west for the organization’s 43rd annual autism conference and expo. I attended the ASA’s conference in Phoenix years ago and I can tell you that it is chock full of information – if you have the chance to get out to San Diego to attend the conference I highly recommend it.
The conference will take place July 25-28, 2012 at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center in San Diego, California. Staff at the Autism Society of America are finalizing the conference agenda and registration will soon be opened.
Although the final agenda has not yet been released, the following workshop and discussion topics were submitted to The Autism Education Site as a bit of a sneak peek into what you can expect if you attend.
The conference program includes breakout sessions covering the following content areas:
- Applied Research
- Current Biomedical Research
- Early Intervention
- Life with Autism
- Long-term Services and Support
- Sensory Processing
- Social Skills
For more information, visit the Autism Society of America National Conference website.
If you can’t make it out to San Diego for this conference, find a 2012 autism conference in your area.
