Conferences

ABOARD’s Autism Connection of PA holds informational conferences several times each year. These are usually large events held in hotels or other conference venues and provide education for parents, professionals, and people on the autism spectrum. Our conferences are accredited and offer continuing education credits to professionals. With the amount of autism research being conducted, regular attendance to these conferences is essential for maintaining an up-to-date understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorders.
