The Annual Minnesota Autism Conference is where we join our voices as a passionate network to inspire hope and innovation. Here speakers, educators, paraprofessionals, therapists, psychologists, professionals, employers, caregivers, parents and individuals on the spectrum have a platform to exchange knowledge and ideas with one another - all with the goal of enhancing the lives of those touched by autism.
