September 01, 2021
The 39th Annual Conference will feature 7 live keynote addresses and 21 new workshops in a 2-day virtual event on October 21 & 22, 2021.
Our carefully curated program includes live keynote addresses from regional experts on impactful topics relating to the health, safety, diversity, and quality of life for individuals with autism and their families.
“While still not a replacement for the face-to-face interactions and networking our conference is known for, the live and interactive features of our virtual event will bridge a connection to attendees and leaders in the field,” said Autism New Jersey Executive Director Dr. Suzanne Buchanan.
