This year, we are accepting research-focused and personal journey posters.
should be related to evidence-based research focusing on service delivery and support for individuals diagnosed with autism or other developmental disabilities. All research-based posters must include a visual display of data. Additionally, the topic of the research should relate to individuals with autism or other developmental disabilities.
Personal journey posters
should describe a personal journey of an individual with autism or other developmental disabilities, or a personal journey of a caregiver or a friend of an individual with autism or other developmental disabilities. The poster should provide some insight about your journey, keys for a successful journey (e.g., things you wish you knew at the beginning of the journey, important facts to keep in mind, do’s and don’ts of supporting an individual navigating neurodiversity)
you may choose to submit
a 2-minute “Spectrum Short” video to accompany your poster and entice the audience to view your poster.
In this year's virtual format, accepted poster speakers will present their posters remotely, with the ability to text and video interface with attendees.
