Autism in Our Community Event (A.C.E.)

WHEN:   Saturday, October 5, 2019
LOCATION:  Penn State Erie - The Behrend College | Burke Center

It is often difficult for families to navigate the system of services and therapies in our community. The timeliness of any and all information regarding Autism Spectrum Disorders is especially pertinent to many consumers, their families, educators, healthcare professionals, and/or legal professionals with the alarming rise in autism related diagnosis in the last two decades.  Autism in Our Community Event provides information about the goods and services available to families influenced by and managing autism in their lives.  

We depend 100% on volunteers to run the conference in order to keep the admission at a nominal fee to cover lunch and free child care, making the event available to all families living with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
