About the Annual Autism Conference
La Salle University’s annual autism conference brings educators, caregivers, self-advocates, researchers, and professionals from the autism community together for a special day of collaboration and networking. It is the region’s longest-running conference focused on creating pathways to brighter futures for individuals and families affected by autism.

The theme of the 2017 autism conference is Building Bridges: Transitioning toward and through Adulthood. Its goal is to share best practices – from science to advocacy – to help those on the autism spectrum navigate life’s transitionary challenges successfully and achieve an optimal quality of life.
