What is the deadline to register? You must register no later than October 12 at 10am. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER. There are no walk-ins.

The conference features a large resource fair in the main hall and a variety of presentations in 7 classrooms across 6 sessions (9am, 10am, 11am, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm). There will be considerable repeats built into the schedule to allow attendees more opportunities to attend their preferred sessions.

Who should attend? The target audience is parents, caregivers, family members and professionals who have responsibilities to plan and care for late teens and adults with substantially disabling autism and related DDs.

Are any sessions in Spanish? Yes, we have two afternoon sessions held in Spanish, one on conservatorship and alternatives and another on the Self-Determination Program.
¿Hay alguna sesión en español? Sí, tenemos dos sesiones por la tarde en español, una sobre tutela y alternativas y otra sobre el Programa de Autodeterminación.

What is the location? Li Ka Shing Center, Stanford University, 291 Campus Drive, Stanford, CA 94305, on both the 1st and 2nd floors. Free parking is a 5-10 minute walk away. There is handicap parking in front of the building.

What does the $65 registration option include? Classroom sessions all day, Resource Fair all day, tote bag, coffee and beverages, lunch

What is the new $10 afternoon option? We added an option for access to the Resource Fair from 1-4pm only. This does not include classroom sessions, lunch, or tote bag.

Are there virtual attendance options? No. Because we have no plenary speakers this year and focus on the interactive resource fair and classroom sessions, we are not offering virtual attendance options.

Will the sessions be recorded? Many of them, yes, but not all, and we will omit all Q&A. The recorded sessions will be available about two weeks after the conference. Again, we are not guaranteeing that any particular recording will be available.
