Call for Presentations Now Open

This is your chance to be part of the South Carolina Autism Society’s Annual Conference!

The South Carolina Autism Society’s Annual Conference is scheduled for Friday, April 15, 2016 in Columbia, SC.  This year in addition to our Keynote Speaker, we will have numerous breakout sessions for attendees to choose from. 

Our Annual Conference is the only statewide event to consistently bring together professionals, individuals on the autism spectrum, family members and advocates in energetic forums for in-depth presentations that cover what’s new in the field of autism and explore how to improve existing services and supports.

This Call for Presentations is seeking presentations that address the full range of issues facing those affected by autism today, provide best practices, practical skills/knowledge, and cutting edge research on topics of interest to those affected by autism.  Content areas include transition, early intervention, education, employment, quality of life, behavior, communication, social skills, community inclusion, mental health and others.

Presentations should be about 45 minutes long, with the opportunity for audience questions.

The varied expertise and experiences of presenters enables attendees to learn how to more effectively advocate and obtain needed services and supports. The ultimate goal of the Annual Conference is to empower family members, individuals on the spectrum and professionals to make informed decisions.

Approved presenters will receive complimentary admission to the Annual Conference, as well as space in the Resource Fair.
