The 2018 Annual Philadelphia Autism Project Conference: Lighting the Way through Transitions was held on November 30, 2018 at Community Behavioral Health (CBH) in Philadelphia, PA. We were excited to see many familiar and new faces at the Conference! We welcomed over 200 attendees representing students, self-advocates, family members, educators, researchers, providers, professionals from city and state departments in and around the Philadelphia area.
We hope attendees had the opportunity to connect with one another, and leaders in the areas of early childhood intervention and treatment, justice, housing, employment and transition-related planning. We look forward to building on these discussions.
We would like to thank our partners, our conference planning committee and all of our speakers: Councilmember-At-Large Derek Green, Deputy Commissioner Roland Lamb, Dr. Tamra Williams, Kerry Magro, Darlene Hemerka, LaQuenta Montanez, Temple Social Xchanges Group, Dr. Jonathan Ivy, Dr. Michael Gamel-McCormick, Valarie Oulds, Dr. Wendy Ross, Kelly Arnold, Marguerite Peashock, Kate Hooven, Police Officer Roslyn Talley, Dr. Diana Robins, Dr. Jeannette Newman, David Gates and Michael Miklos.
