#Connect2Autism: The 45th Autism Society National Conference & Exposition, July 23-26, 2014.

Temple at Harvard
Don’t miss your chance to join us for the 45th Annual Autism Society National Conference & Exposition in Indianapolis. The Autism Society is the nation’s oldest grassroots organization committed to those living with autism spectrum disorder, and we have planned one of the largest autism conferences in the country. This year we have created another extraordinary program with cutting-edge topics, varied formats and leading speakers, including the most famous autism advocate in the world, Dr. Temple Grandin. Dr. Grandin is inarguably the most renowned individual with autism today. In addition to being a prominent author and speaker, Grandin has received numerous honors and awards, including being listed as a “hero” in Time magazine’s 2010 list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

The program includes more 80 break-out sessions on topics spanning from early childhood to adulthood, providing practical take-aways on hot topics such as bullying prevention, technology, social skills, criminal justice, employment and transition.

This conference strives to provide you with practical strategies you can implement right away. There are many networking opportunities; this year we are offering SHARING SESSIONS where you can connect with others around common interests and goals. There is nothing more powerful than when this community’s members come together to support one another other, celebrate, and share ideas, stories and hope. You’re sure to find something at this National Conference that meets your needs.

Looking for something fun to do this summer? Indianapolis is the place to be! Come journey with us to the Midwest and explore a friendly, inviting and vibrant city that has it all. A $275 million expansion has made the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium one of the largest convention centers in America. This contemporary center is convenient to all of our conference hotels, a four-story shopping mall, 200+ restaurants and clubs, well-known sports venues, and a 10-block state park featuring museums, beautiful green space and a canal walk. Register today!
