About Us

The Savannah Autism Conference aims to improve our community’s capacity for inclusion and support of autistic individuals from childhood through adulthood.

The goals of our conference:

  • Provide educators with the necessary training for adequately supporting autistic students in the general education setting. 
  • Provide parents and caregivers with the tools and information required to support, advocate, and build a life of meaning for their autistic children. 
  • Self-advocates will find an accepting space, learn strategies on employment, social needs, self-determination, and personal life.
