About the Conference

The theme for this year’s conference is: “A Spectrum of Resources”.

Join us virtually on Nov. 5, 2020, for a full day of informative, thought-provoking Breakout sessions and Keynote addresses by experts in the field of assessment, treatment, and support of individuals on the Autism Spectrum.

To promote social distancing and reduce the risks associated with travel and large gatherings, and to offer APAC to a wider audience, we have decided to go virtual for the Second Annual APAC event. We are pleased to offer this virtual gathering of researchers, practitioners, individuals on the Autism Spectrum, and parents, from a variety of disciplines and locations to explore how to contribute to a higher quality of life for individuals on the Autism Spectrum as well as their families. All aspects of APAC will be accessible from the comfort of your home or office—no travel is needed!

Who should attend?

APAC is for individuals on the Autism Spectrum, their family members, behavior analysts, medical professionals such as nurses and physicians, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, psychologists, faculty and researchers, teachers, intervention staff, support workers, and all other stakeholders interested in Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Mission statement
