The Autism’s Own Conference is one of the few autism events organized entirely by people on the autism spectrum. It is the result of a collaborative effort by Victoria’s autism community, and it allows individuals on the autism spectrum to share their experiences and engage in dialogue with the typically-developing community.

This year, we are excited to introduce a new format with panel discussions on topics highly relevant to individuals on the autism spectrum: Transition to Adulthood, the Autism Diagnosis for Adults, and Surviving K-12 Education. We will also feature musical and theatre performances by individuals on the autism spectrum, as well as artistic displays. Our central theme will be “Conversations on Autism over the Lifespan.”

Doors open at 10:30 am. Please feel free to come and go during the event. Food will be provided.
