Join us and our inspirational speakers from across the globe as we examine sensory health and the pivotal role it has in the autistic experience. Explore what differences in sensory integration/processing look like and how this role in development and function is overly simplified and poorly understood in Autism. Throughout this collaborative event, professionals and advocates will "pass around the mic," articulating their unique perspectives, as the dimensions of sensory health are discussed within the context of development, neurodiversity, best practices in therapy, best practices, and quality of life for individuals.

Participants will have access to our jam-packed 4-day agenda consisting of 16 hours of pre-recorded presentations, LIVE Q&A with speakers, LIVE interactive workshops, and expert panels. Our integrated approach to person-centric and science-orientated presentations focusing on Autistic insight, lived-experiences and evidence-based practice & research will inspire, educate and empower individuals and professionals. With real-world application discussions and advocate voices, attendees will be given tools and strategies for home, school, and community function and advocacy.

Let's honor the true spirit of all those around us and understand Sensory Processing/Integration in Autism together!
