Join us this year as we explore the theme: Innovation to Action: Connecting the Pieces with Practical Strategies. We are now accepting proposals for workshop sessions and posters. The proposal committee is particularly interested in receiving evidence-based or evidence-informed proposal content inclusive of practical strategies relevant to individuals living with autism.

The Autism Conference and Expo (ACE) of Georgia, ‘Innovation to Action: Connecting the Pieces with Practical Strategies’, will specifically focus on the best thinking in the autism community and will provide practical strategies relevant to individuals living with autism and their family members. This state-wide conference will offer educational and engaging forums for professionals, parents and self-advocates. The purpose of the conference is to translate research and best practices into sustainable community practices that contribute to independent, self-determined, inclusive, and productive lives for people with autism and their families.

We are interested in receiving proposals from individuals living with autism or those who support individuals with autism including: psychologists, social workers, speech language pathologists, counselors, teachers, behavior analysts, researchers, occupational therapists, physical therapist, parents, nurses, medical doctors, early interventionists and policy makers.

The committee invites proposals that:

  • Address current challenges faced by professionals and community members and are solution-oriented
  • Deliver model practices using approaches for different types of learners
  • Stimulate and provoke discussion and audience engagement
  • Present evidence based on or supported by research
  • Target individuals with autism and their family members
  • Target either new, mid-career, or seasoned professionals
  • Use accessible multimedia approaches to enhance attendee learning
  • Explore issues important to individuals with autism and their families

The overall program will result in a diverse array of presenters and perspectives, including those with different nationalities, different levels of experience, and different institutional and organizational types. Proposals with presenters from a single institution or multiple institutions will be considered equally.

This conference is sponsored by the Georgia State University
