AUTCON: AN UNCONVENTIONAL CONVENTION FOR ADULTS WITH AUTISM
May 10 @ 10:00 am - 9:00 pm
Utah has one of the highest rates of Autism in the nation. Nearly 1 of every 58 children born in Utah are on the autism spectrum, that’s 13% higher than the national average. The vast majority of services and resources for Autism are directed toward supporting children on the autism spectrum. But children with Autism grow up to be adults with Autism. With few mentors, and even fewer resources available, many adults on the spectrum struggle to get the support they need to lead successful and independent lives.
This one-of-a-kind convention is designed for adults on the autism spectrum, to support both professional and personal networking, to provide accurate information, and to highlight services and resources available in the community. Presenters and panelists on the spectrum, will share their knowledge and personal experiences in an autism-friendly setting.
