We are excited to announce the 8th Annual Philadelphia Autism Project Conference: Embracing Intersecting Identities through Allyship and Advocacy.  This conference will take place in person on Wednesday, October 11th, 2023, and virtually on Friday, October 13th, 2023. At this yearly event, members of the Philadelphia community come together to share ideas and resources. This year’s theme is focused on how autism can impact a person’s identity. During the conference, we will talk about how different parts of a person’s identity (such as their culture) can influence and shape the experiences of autistic individuals.
