In a World Where You Can Be Anything...Be Kind
Thank you to everyone who participated in the conference!
For Families, Health Professionals, Educators, and Advocates
We are very excited to announce the upcoming Oklahoma Statewide Autism Conference! As with most things during this season of our lives, the conference will look different this year. Instead of an in person conference we are hosting a two, half-day virtual conference. While we are not able to meet in person
this year, we are committed to carrying on the eleven year tradition of bringing nationally recognized experts to Oklahoma to help us continue to learn and grow as parents, professionals, and individuals with ASD.
Historically, our conferences have been two full days, with up to 30 speakers covering a variety of topics. This year, we decided to do something different. The year 2020 has been tough for most of us for a variety of reasons. Through the challenges, we have all likely reflected on the essence of what really matters in our lives. This year we are focusing on the essence of what matters for individuals with ASD and their families. Belonging, connection, and joy. As family members this is what we strive for, for our loved one with ASD and for our family as a whole. As professionals, this is the essence of what supports we provide should support our clients to achieve…a good life, a life of belonging, a life of meaningful relationships, and a life filled with joy.
We appreciate the support of all the sponsors, volunteers, and speakers who have made the Oklahoma Statewide Autism Conference a success for the past eleven years. We look forward to you joining us virtually this year. And we look forward to seeing each other again when we return to the tradition of our in person conferences in the future.
