Pennsylvania Autism (Virtual) Training Conference
Conference Dates: October 5–7, 2021
The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) is requesting proposals from professionals who provide support for individuals with autism for stories that focus on their lived experience. As a provider, you probably experienced many challenges and adversity in the past months, both related and unrelated to the COVID-19 pandemic. How can we take the hardships, learn from them, and integrate that knowledge as we move into the future?
During PATC 2021, we will be highlighting the concept of post-traumatic growth, that from difficult experiences comes opportunity and the chance for progress. We want to give you the opportunity to share your experience, your stories of ordeals and difficulties, and of recovery and resilience.
Further instructions, including how to submit your story, can be found here.
Submission due date has been extended to August 20, 2021!
