We are delighted to announce Temple Grandin as the Autism Society Keynote Speaker.
Dr. Temple Grandin is inarguably the most well renowned individual with autism in the world today. In 1950, she was diagnosed with autism and her parents were told she should be institutionalized. Fortunately for Grandin, they did not heed that advice. In spite of the obstacles, Grandin became a doctor in animal science, a professor at Colorado University, and has received several honors and awards in her lifetime thus far, including being listed in the Time magazine 100 list of the one hundred most influential people in the world as a “hero.” Grandin has become a prominent author, speaker, and is on the Autism Society’s Panel of People on the Spectrum of Autism.
Please join us on Thursday, July 24 at 8:30 -10:00 am for the Opening General Session and Temple Grandin’s keynote address
The Autism Conference week consists of several different events. For most, it’s to hear the latest information from world-renowned experts. For others, it’s a great vacation. But, for nearly all, there’s the one-of-a-kind experience that permeates our autism conference all week long, July 23-26, 2014. Here are some of the events:
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
Because we have created an extraordinary program with cutting edge topics, leading speakers and varied formats to make this convention as interactive and engaging as possible. The programming includes over 80 sessions spanning from early childhood to adulthood, practical take-aways and panel discussions on hot topics such bullying prevention, criminal justice, employment, and transition. You’re sure to find something at our conference that meets your needs. Find out which sessions are for you.
And, you will have the chance to network informally by joining our NEW SHARING SESSIONS and connecting with others around common interests and goals.
SHOW THE COMMUNITY, HOW WE HAVE FUN!
On Thursday, July 24, come join the Autism Society at Victory Field, Sports Illustrated’s #1 Triple-A ballpark, just a few steps from the Indiana Convention Center. The Indianapolis Indians will take on the Charlotte Knights. Don’t miss out on an evening of fun and special promotions! Game ticket is included in the registration price.
Come journey with us to the Midwest and explore a friendly, inviting and vibrant city that has it all. The $275 million expansion has made the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium (location of the 2012 Super Bowl) one of the largest convention centers in America. The convention center is located in the heart of downtown Indianapolis and is a 15-20 minute drive from Indianapolis International Airport. This contemporary convention center is connected by skywalks to both of our conference hotels and a four-story shopping mall. The convention center is also surrounded by 200+ restaurants and clubs, well-known sports venues, and a 10-block state park featuring museums, beautiful green space and a canal walk. Sports Illustrated’s Peter King called Indianapolis “the most walkable downtown in America.” Register here.
