The Autism Law Summit is an annual, two-day gathering of parent advocates, autism service providers, lawyers, individuals with autism, lobbyists, and legislators from across the United States who are interested in the politics and policy of autism spectrum disorders. Now in its 13th year, the Autism Law Summit creates space for interactive, high-level, expert-facilitated conversations on improving health insurance, Medicaid, and adult services.
Smart, passionate people come to brainstorm strategies and hatch plans for shaping autism law and policy, and to spend quality time with friends from across the country who've shared similar experiences. Discussion topics include:
The Autism Law Summit extends deep appreciation to The Braff Group for its generous sponsorship of the 2019 Autism Law Summit.
