The Autism Society recognizes that families and individuals living with an autism spectrum disorder have a range of issues and needs. Our National Conference addresses the range of issues affecting people with autism including early intervention, education, employment, behavior, communication, social skills, biomedical interventions and others, across the entire lifespan. Bringing together the expertise and experiences of family members, professionals and individuals on the spectrum, attendees are able to learn how to more effectively advocate and obtain supports for the individual with ASD. The ultimate goal is to empower family members, individuals on the spectrum and professionals to make informed decisions.
We hope to see you in INDY for the 45th Annual Autism Society National Conference and Exposition. A $275 million expansion has made the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium (location of the 2012 Super Bowl) one of the largest convention centers in America. The convention center is located in the heart of downtown Indianapolis and is a 15-20 minute drive from Indianapolis International Airport. This contemporary convention center is connected by skywalks to both of our conference hotels and a four-story shopping mall. The convention center is also surrounded by 200+ restaurants and clubs, well-known sports venues, and a 10-block state park featuring museums, beautiful green space and a canal walk. Sports Illustrated’s Peter King called Indianapolis “the most walkable downtown in America.” You don’t want to miss this great event!!
