The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel held its annual National Autism Conference last week, a showcase for autism professionals to learn about current research and earn continuing education credits.
During the week, more than 2,000 conference participants attended more than 100 presentations, Penn State Outreach Conference Planner Katie Friedman said.
“The aim is to get the latest evidence-based information to educators, providers and families so that those people can effectively educate their students and children,” Friedman said.
Presentations on the spectrum of autism disorders were introduced from 9 a.m. until 4:15 p.m. with exhibits on display throughout the day. Presenters were selected by the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network (PaTTAN). Topics ranged from girls growing up with autism to sex education for autistic children, Friedman said.
