The ABAI autism conference features topics developed specifically for practitioners, scientists and parents of children with autism. Poster sessions offer conference attendees the opportunity to review the foremost autism research being conducted around the world. Attendees are also able to visit a bookstore and exhibit booths throughout the event.
“The goal of the presentations is to educate the community on effective methods of educating students with autism and continue to build lasting relationships that produce exceptional results,” said LaMarche.
Participants of the ABAI conference are afforded opportunities to learn through lectures, discussions and hands-on sessions, and connect with colleagues in the field. It is considered a premier event for the autism and developmental disability market, and attendees are among the most highly sought after speakers and researchers in the world.
