OCALICON 2016 seeks proposals from professionals, scholars, parents/family members, self-advocates, and other leaders in the fields of autism, sensory disabilities, and low-incidence disabilities (including deafblind, hearing impairments, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and visual impairments). All proposals are welcome.
OCALICON is committed to providing high-quality opportunities not just for understanding ideas and practices, but also for analyzing, applying, synthesizing, and evaluating concepts and actions.
In this spirit, OCALICON continues to diversify session offerings. In addition to the National Autism Leadership Summit, University Summit on ASD, the Research Symposium, lectures, panel sessions, and work meetings, OCALICON actively promotes learning and growth through facilitated discussions, hands-on interactive, and learning lab sessions. Learn more about OCALICON session types.
Additionally, OCALICON 2016 broadens its scope to further increase sessions targeted toward sensory disabilities and low-incidence disabilities, as well as those that address challenges and supports for individuals across their lifespan. Learn more about the OCALICON session topics and population targets.
OCALICON 2016 presenter candidates are encouraged to think deeply about how their session content could be best presented for adult learners. OCALICON 2016 will showcase sessions that are interactive and comprehensive, focusing on topics of national significance and targeted toward an experienced audience with an advanced level of expertise or understanding. Submit proposals that enhance the implementation of session content through engaging discussions questions, add perspective to a topic through a panel session that features varying points of view, or further engage your audience through hands-on interactive activities.
