2023 Pennsylvania Autism Training Conference: PATC Ignite 2023

November 7 - November 9

ODP’s Pennsylvania Autism Training Conference (PATC) will be taking the virtual stage once again in November 7 through 9, 2023. The conference will be conducted virtually on a three-day schedule that will include presentations and panels from subject matter experts, providers, self-advocates, and families. Personal narratives will be interspersed throughout the conference in an effort to highlight the perspective of the individual which should remain at the core of what we do.

This conference will provide professionals working directly with children and/or adults with autism, with tools, strategies, and resources to help provide the most effective support.

This year’s theme is PATC: Ignite. Join the virtual conference this fall to learn from individuals with lived experience, researchers, providers, and more!
