A collegial conference with real-world application that values the voices of those with the lived experience. A truly collaborative experience between professionals and advocates.

Our goal - supporting health, well-being, and sense-of-self through an increased understanding of sensory processing and integration.

Explore dynamic evidence-based practice, delve into current research, and probe assumptions around autism. Participants will explore the profound influence sensory processing differences have on development and function, enabling them to effectively look beyond "behaviors" and identify underlying mechanisms. Strategies for home, school and the community will be provided, as will tools for advocacy.

Now available on our Online Learning Platform are the presentations from our 2020 Virtual Summit: Sensory Processing in Autism event. Purchase access to each individual presentation or as a complete collection package of 14 presentations.
