Into the future - Adult Autism/DD Planning Workshop
SFASA's annual conference, "Into the Future: An Adult Autism/DD Planning Workshop" will be held December 3, 2016 at the LKS Center at Stanford University. We expect about 350 attendees and 30 speakers. Portions of the conference will also be livestreamed and videotaped.
This program focuses on long-term planning for adults with ASD and related developmental disabilities.
