THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED – MORE INFO TO FOLLOW!

Join us for The Autism Program of Illinois’ 2020 Autism Symposium featuring both National and State-level autism experts. Our keynote speaker, nationally recognized Dr. Catherine Lord, will present findings from a 26 year observational study which provides an outlook of factors that may have affected the life trajectories of participants diagnosed on the autism spectrum. This study also shows the diverse pathways that lead to different levels of skill and achievement in individuals with autism.

Our lineup of featured speakers are statewide experts who are associated with TAP and will be presenting their research findings about current evidence-based therapeutic trends.
